Since Erick is quite obviously having problems with his computer these days (See “Slow-Blogging”), I figured I would fill the void by abusing my front page posting privileges with a personal request.
With Mother’s Day coming very quickly, I have been getting the not so subtle hint that my wife wants a laptop. (Subtle: “Gee this computer is so slow. I wish I had a computer that was faster.” Not-so-subtle: “So what kind of laptop are you getting me for Mother’s Day? I’d like a laptop that has …” You get the picture.)
For those of you who know me, I am cheap – which makes shopping for a laptop very difficult.
Since most of you know far too much about computing, I figured why not ask what you would suggest I look for/purchase.
Also, consider this an open thread … feel free to discuss what you are getting for Mom/what you Mother’s out there want for your special day.
Oh, and Thanks to all you moms out there – for loving us through thick, thin and Bill Simon.
