In Which I Go Shopping For Technology
So I finally got my tax money which is awesome. Since Twin and I bought our house, the tax breaks have been much better.
This year I decided that I should buy a new laptop. I haven't had a brand new computer in over 10 years and my current laptop was refurbished when I bought it around 7-8 years ago.
Old laptop perks:
Stylish NaNoWriMo sticker
Familiarity = ease of use-ability
Keyboard molded to my fingers = less typos
All my music stored
New Laptop perks:
Speakers that work
Mouse that works
Shiny and new
Full keyboard so I can use the number pad
Wide screen monitor so I can easily update blogger layout
HDMI output so we can hook it up to the TV and watch the laptop stuff on our awesome TV
Nice video card = Sims and other PC game compatibility
Sunday evening we started up Sims and made a new family. It was fun because while one of us played, the rest could watch on the TV.
Ah Sims. Will we ever break free from your clutches?
All signs point to No...
