I needed (okay, maybe wanted really badly!) another fast computer in the house. We have our dinosaur computer (painfully slow)used just for word processing in our redone basement, but let's face it-it's still the basement...
- I needed the portability of a smart phone (I love my phone but typing on it for long periods of time isn't fun.)
- I needed the processing power of a desktop (I love our main computer but I am stuck in one locale and everyone else loves it too!)
- I needed the convenience of a laptop(but I didn't want a huge machine to lug around).
- And let's face it-who wouldn't want the fun of a tablet pc?
- I wanted a combination of all of these all rolled into one...
What I got was: my new HP TouchSmart tablet laptop. It is only four pounds so very easy to move around. It has an i3 processor, and although not the fastest out there (they have i5 and now i7), it's quick enough for me. And I can toggle between entirely touch screen like a tablet (the screen flips 180 and lies flat on the keyboard), or use my included stylus or keyboard at any time while the laptop is upright. It came loaded with Windows 7 which I am slowly getting used to, but a very bare Microsoft Office that I may or may not upgrade. And you may not be able to tell but the case is pretty snazzy-no excess fingerprint problems! But the bottom line is I'm loving this new machine. (I haven't let anyone else touch it although both my kids are quite interested-LOL!)
Can I hear a collective "ooh"? But it's also time for Succinctly Yours, another writing meme that piggy backs on the idea of Susan of the Stony River Blog.
Grandma Goulash posts a picture and you are to write a 140 character or word story about it. You can also use the word of the day in your post if you wish. This week's word is obscure. Here is the picture and my story:
It's way too late to come around your blogs now, but I can't wait to check what you all wrote tomorrow!
