Excited About Something Not Yarn?!

I am typing this entry on my new Dell Studio 17 laptop! I was so excited about it, I thought it definitely deserving of a blog entry. It’s absolutely gorgeous and extremely practical not to mention powerful. My hubby prepared the specifications for the order since I’m a bit tech un-savvy in the hardware department.

The design is called New World 4 and it’s by Joseph Amedokpo in support of the PRODUCT (RED) initiative to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.

Just when you thought screens couldn’t get any better or clearer, they did. The quality of the images is getting extremely close to the level of my HDTV. This laptop also comes with a separate number pad (nice), but that means my hands are a little off-centre on the keyboard initially. I’ve been automatically placing my hands one position to the right of where they should be (laugh to myself about it every time I have to look down and think of where to put my fingers). And Vista DEFINITELY takes some getting used to.

I had to get a cool green laser mouse to go with the laptop and they work perfectly with the funky pink laptop case which DH got me for Christmas 2006.
