A New Laptop

I seldom buy something without taking a look at it first. But with this particular purchase yesterday, I did exactly that. Well, I knew I wanted a Lenovo (sturdy and reliable) and that it should have a 15"+ screen. The rest, though, I just left it to the shop that I'd been buying my computers from since a decade ago. I don't need anything too fancy, I told them; just something with a big screen (for video viewing), a fast-ish processor, a big-ish hard disc and that's it. Doesn't matter if it's a bit heavy cos I will be using it as a desktop anyway. So when I saw my new computer -- the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15 -- I was, like, okay, it HAS a large screen ~ cool! What's not so cool is that it is a tad too glossy for my liking  (terrible glare) and the CapsLock is so close to the "A" key I keep capping my letters (very annoying) ... but other than that (well, I'll just have to get used to that cos it's a bit too late to change my mind now) this computer is a major upgrade from the last one. The process of transferring all my stuff from the old computer to the new one - and having the latter set up - was surprisingly painless. These days, it seems all you need to do is to power up your computer, link it onto the Internet, and it pretty much configs itself.
