Hooray! I bought a new laptop today. Much love to BF for helping me pick it out and purchase, as the guys at Best Buy, though nice, probably would have talked me into buying a bunch of extras that i didn't really need.
it is a Gateway MX6421 with an AMD Turion processor, 512 MB DDR, 80 GB HDD, etc etc.
Am too terribly excited. The girl who was checking me out asked about what i was going to use if for and i had to fish about for an answer. Technically i didn't absolutely have to purchase a laptop as a new desktop would have been better for cheaper probably. I really did want the portability though, as BF just has a desktop and this will work well for plane/car trips. Also, until we move in together in May it will be ultra-nice to be able to tote my computer now to BF's to use with all my stuff on it rather than fight him for his and still not have my bookmarks, lists, etc on it.
currently: watching the UNC-Duke game
