Go! Smell The New Computer!

Posted on July 20th, 2008 by taylorblue

So, yes, finally I am in the modern world now. I finally bought a laptop computer!

In January, I was in a car accident. We finally got the settlement for the injuries I sustained in the accident. So, with part of the money I decided to get a laptop. I used to sit in this dark corner of our dining room and I was so sick of not being able to watch TV and do my work.

How exciting is that, I have never been able to go out and buy something without worrying about how much money it is so I was so excited to buy this one. I am super impressed at how fast it runs…which brings me to one of the disadvantages. A lot of the things I used everyday from my huge file of pictures is on my other computer. BUT, I am too lazy to turn that old one on because it take literally 20 minutes before I can even get on the internet after it turns on.

It’s great to take my work with me, because I already work 14 hours a day at least and 7 days a week. What have I got myself into?

What do you like about new things you buy?

    congrats TaylorBlue – of course a faster machine just means no tea breaks while you’re waiting for it to ‘boot up’ anymore. (sigh)

    Oh yeh…. new fast laptop…. the stuff of dreams…. but with your new found power comes greater responsibility… you no longer canleave your work at home… you have the technology so you will have to take it with you…… there is no where to hid ….. arggghhhhhhhhh… ;)
    New is good…
    What I like about new things is the fact that they are NEW and not pre owned, pre used etc…..
    although I do like antiques…. and there is something to be said for the history of things..

  3. Congratulations TaylorBlue!!! What I like about purchasing something new is the new features, unblemished and updated. I also like that no one has used it before, so you know the history.

      I prefer the smell of new leather and wood in cars to the new ‘electrical smell’ you get with new appliances – yuk – having said that my new mac bookpro just smelt of fresh metal and the house smells of furniture polish after my marathon house cleaning week.

      Oh and the Fabulous Photo Gifts office/workshop smells of freshly ironed clothing with all the t-shirt printing…..
