Well, here I am typing away on my new computer, having finally got my internet set up (thanks Telus support guys!). The new computer (an HP Pavilion) has got pretty much everything I want – SD Card reader, built in webcam, fair chunk of memory, the nicest screen I’ve ever seen on a laptop, why the durned thing even has a remote! Mike recommended it. Apart from an external mouse, I didn’t need anything else.
It does have Vista, but we’re going to Vista at work so I won’t be able to avoid it. My next computer will be a Linux Box.
