Went out yesterday to buy a new battery for my notebook computer, and came home with a whole new notebook computer instead. (shrug)
My current one is about 3 or 4 years old now, bought about this time of year for my travels to Toyfair and BotCon... so needed to upgrade.
With Windows 7 and Intel i7, for only $900*, this should cover me for another 3 to 4 years.
*the old one was about $1500 when I bought it, so it feels good to get something more powerful for a lot less... and the guy in the store knocked off $100, bringing it down to the same price of the i5 version sitting next to it. Free upgrade... very nice. :)
