Probably not interesting to anoyne else, but I'm typing this comment on my very own brand new laptop, the first I've ever owned. My computer has always been the last handmedown from the SO, which was an elegant but oh so useless Mac (the kind which looks like a desk lamp). The OS hadn't been updated since 2003 and the CD drive was broken, enquiries about downloadable or USB updates resulted in prices which didn't seem worth it. As a result no current browser could be run on it and because of THAT my web experience was becoming sticky and unpleasant to say the least. Finally there's been enough hiatus in dentistry, car and appliance related disasters (tempting fate here) to get my own notebook.Bliss!
