• More laptop replacement planning…

    by  • 11/29/2004 • geek • 0 Comments

    I’ve come to the conclusion that these are my two primary options for a laptop to replace my aging Dell Inspiron 5000 (700MHz P3) system (no wireless, dead battery, and the system weighs about 200 pounds). I don’t really need to push the machine that hard, so I’m likely fine with the iBook… I need to actively begin saving, transfering cash into the ING savings account. Between that and the Pappal account I think I have a grand total of $200 … I’ll have to check on that, and setup a nice display here so that I have to see how much is left before I can order myself te replacement laptop.
