New addition to the family  

Posted by Roddykat in ,

Ladies and Gentlemen...and lowlifes,

    I would like to introduce you to a new member of the family who's only over a week old. Trying to be gentle but I know there will be some problems as it grows older. Anyway, I would like to introduce.....

My wife's new laptop.... What? What did you think it was?

Anyway, nice, isn't it?

It's a Gateway MK series (because I can't remember the model even if I THOUGHT you'd care).
2.0Ghz processor, 100GB hard drive with XP Media Center Edition. That last last part aside, it a good computer. It also means 3 things of importance:

1) I have Tech Support duty on another computer (no complaint).

2) My wife has a faster computer than I do which means...

3) I am scrambling to build me a new computer because the geek in me demands that there is no way in HELL that number 2 should be the case!

All she does is surf the net and some word processing. The reason why I broke down for it was so that she could get off of mine. Selfish? I don't think so. At any case, she's loving it, and I am a case and some ram away from another system. Then i'm another system away from building a new for myself. The system i'm gathering parts for now is going to be a place for us to store our files, which means i'm still on the old computer now. The one that the laptop is replacing will probably be taken out back and shot. Yep, it was just that old.

Anyway, I can't wait until I can build me a new system. I pretty much know what I want, but I don't have the money to do it. That part sucks. But when it's on, it will be on!

Now that i've geeked out, I feel a bit better. I now return you to your other randomness.

This geek out was unofficially sponsored by:

Go here for a good buy. The Holidays are coming you know....

2 full and speaking on it

#2 and 3 are the funniest and i am sure completely and totally true. I am jealous of the computer though.

Now why for would that be, lady? The funny thing about it is that i have since built the new computer (w/pictures) and not using it for it's intended use....

But I did manage to make a (slightly) faster computer.
