I finally have a new laptop! I think my old laptop, the dinosaur, senses this, because it has been very slow and uncooperative lately when I've been turning it on to copy files off of it. It's as if it knows I'm "cheating" on it with a new, younger, faster, shinier model.
I ended up purchasing an HP Pavilion dv4-1465dx notebook. It's small and perfect for lugging around campus for grad school. My main requirements were size (this one is 14"), battery life (6 hours), and weight (I have no clue how much it weighs, but it's a feather compared to my old brick).
The only drawback of it is that the OS is Vista. I'm waiting for Windows 7 to be released in October so I can get my free upgrade. I never used to believe those who harped on Vista, but it truly is awful. There's nothing redeeming about it.
In other news, can you believe Patrick Swayze passed away? So sad! May he rest in peace.
P.S. For those wondering about the title of the post, it refers to the nickname I gave my laptop, since it's small yet powerful.
