I got a new laptop

I mentioned a couple of days ago that my laptop died. I went camping yesterday but today when I got back I decided I needed a computer. I bought a new HP. Core 2 Duo, 200GB drive, 4GB Ram, NVidia 8400 video, GB Ethernet and 802.11abgn wireless. I may upgrade the drive as it is 4800RPM instead of 5400RPM. I'll see how it does after I install a couple of databases. It has a DVD/CD recorder with lightscribe. I've never used that but I will probably play with it. So far I am happy but it took 2 hours just to delete all of the garbage off of it (AOL, Norton, etc). It also downloaded about 40 updates. Right now I'm just waiting for Heroes to start. K-Ville is not on tonight for some reason. meh. LewisC
