. . . and this blog. My laptop died (47 days after warranty expiration) it breathes but the display is comatose. Dell offered to sell me a replacement part for more money than the laptop originally cost. Figures.
A brand new Acer arrived late yesterday. It features a quad-core Intel i5 and a sparkling display which can even be connected to my HDTV. Even an old fart like me loves a new toy.
