Getting a new computer is both a happy and a sad occasion. This will most likely be my last post on my old computer. In case you didn't know what it was (most of you don't) it was a very cute Averatec with a 12.1 inch screen. I'm very in love with very small laptops. Not only are they cute and light, but anything larger than a 14 inch screen and you really ought to get a desktop. I have small hands, so I like the small keyboard. I like to be able to take my laptop to a coffee shop so that I don't feel like I am holed up all alone. I like to blog, but I also like to be social.
The other reason for getting a new computer is that I killed my battery. I was trying to refresh it so it would hold a charge for longer and killed it completely in the process. I looked into buying a new battery and I was going to cost $100 as a special order since this computer is/was actually pretty rare. I'm going to be more careful with the battery from now on. Why spend 1/8 of the price of a new laptop on an old one that is working too slowly?
My new computer, an HP Pavilion tx2110us 12.1" Touchscreen Entertainment Laptop, has alot going for it. It has a built in webcam, microphone, it doubles as a tablet, the touch screen technology is so much fun for playing solitaire! I can't wait to explore more of what the touch screen technology can do. The down side is that it looks like I will have to break in the keyboard. It's a little bit different than what I have now.
It runs alot faster than what I am typing on now. I got tired of it taking forever for me to get to my blog or check my email. I tried everything to save it. Defragmenting my hard drive, searching and destroying bots and spyware all did nothing. It was time to move on, no matter how hard it was/is. The next time you see a small handed woman on a little laptop typing away like crazy, start wondering if it's me. The things I write ring true for many people.
