New Laptop!

The new laptop was finally delivered, after 6:30 p.m. sometime. (yikes) I'd started to think it wasn't going to come today after all...

Anyway, I can't believe that I'm in the living room posting to my blog. That's just so cool!

This is an IBM ThinkPad -- and so was the first laptop I ever had, years and years ago. That one was back in the days when I didn't even have a CD slot, much less a modem! I used an external CD player that was almost as big as the laptop, believe it or not! I bought it used from a friend and later discovered that I'd paid her way too much for it. But I used to haul it around a lot and did get a lot of use out of it, for what it was. I mainly used Word to type documents.

I like the trackball mouse that's in the center of the keyboard (a tiny red 'ball'). At this point I'm using both that and the touch pad mouse. We'll see which one 'wins' out in the long run... I've never used a laptop enough to get used to the built-in mouse, as crazy as that sounds.

The keyboard has nice touch, one of the things that usually drives me NUTS about laptops! I think I'm going to really love this new baby! (smile)

The monitor is very clear. I think I'll be able to do graphics with this. (But I'll probably have to use an external mouse for that!)

Today is another hot day -- though I can't for the life of me find out anywhere what the high was today, whatever that's about. It was a good day to be inside with air conditioning, I'll tell you that.

I'm going to play with my new laptop now!
