New Laptop

Share

(Toledo, OH) After receiving an overdue check in the mail today I traveled to Office Depot to check out laptops.

Although I was disappointed with the troublesome A/C cord on my previous Compaq Presario, I could not resist the $455 price tag on a Presario V2000 notebook.

It was a demo, so the sales rep knocked it down from $569.

I lose a little in size, but the machine is about one-half the weight of my Presario 3000.

I know Matt Sussman will be booing the decision, but at $455 (plus a $30 mail-in rebate) I chose economy.

Besides, I am looking for speed, memory, and wireless, and do not need much in the way of video or audio capabilities. Just allow me to type and blog, and I'm golden.

Mike,

Whatever does the job for you ;-)

After all, it's only hardware; a mere commodity in today's world.

let me know your feelings down the road a few mile? I need to buy a personal use laptop in the near future.

That was a good buy. I had a grand in my head as the minimum.
