CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY

So Christmas came early this year. I have had my son, engineer boy, computer extraordinaire, on the lookout for a laptop for a few months now. He called the other night and said "I found you one!!" Go to Newegg.com.
So quick as a whistle I moved on it because Internet deals don't stick around long.
Guaranteed delivery in 3 days for $10.00 WONDERFUL!!!!

And here she is!!

Acer Aspire AS1410-2801 Sapphire Blue Intel Celeron SU2300(1.2GHz) 11.6" 2GB Memory 160GB HDD Netbook

All shiny and pretty.... 11.6" screen, fits in my lap just wonderful.



Webcam and Windows 7


Full size keyboard....


And a mini mouse (NOT MINNIE MOUSE, but a mini mouse)
(shown here next to regular mouse)


I am just thrilled to pieces. Just in case I ever get stuck in the airport like last August, see post, I am prepared for a little entertainment + now I can take all you bloggy buddies with me wherever I go!!!

Oh this opens up a whole new world!!! Son is coming over this weekend to teach me how to drive this thing, do some tweaking, and get me on the straight and narrow path. I am sure I will have to promise him not to do certain things or push certain buttons, but I will try to be a good student and heed all warnings....
