The only brand I will not consider would be a Dell, I know many people happy with their older machines but I have yet to find anyone liking the newer models.
It looks like I'll be ordering my textbooks in the next couple days. Amazon will save me close to $100!
Hope everyone is having a good week. I was honored to sit in for a bit on the local taping of Bridging the Racial Divide. I can't wait to see it on air! I had to leave early because I had a meeting but even the little I saw was an enlightening experience.
I have a Compaq Presario and LOVe it. It's on the lower end in price (650 I think) and I have not had an ounce of trouble with it. In fact (and don't tell DH) mine is faster than his Gateway (h denies it though) and his was around a thousand dollars.
Mine is lightweight, pretty thin, the screen is large but not bulky and the keyboard is perfect if you have larger hands and fingers like I do.
Sorry I have been MIA. I've been pumping out homework and as y'all can see the list is completely done! Yeah! Kailey has been sick with a stomache virus since early Monday morning and I have been home with her. YEAH though she is feeling better and my sore throat is nearly gone!
I'm actually all caught up on studies and man it feels great! I've even had classmates e-mailing me assignments during the days I've been absent. I could so do Independant Study
I hope you all are doing well in your studies and at home.
Oh, my advisor sent me my graduation report and I have 14 more course then I am done! Well, done with classes then I just have student teaching and seminar.
Mark started teaching on Monday and I am so freakin jealous, he says he loves it, and he doesn't just say, "yeah I love it." But he says it with a sigh and gets all starry-eyed. The big old jerk
Ok, time to get ready for work (one more week and I am done!) Oh and Mark gets paid on Tuesday and its a FULL paycheck! WOOHOO!
