My old Dell laptop, which has taken lots of abuse and been around for too many years, bit the dust this morning. I got the power cord caught in my shoe and pulled it off the table it was on, bedside. Cracked the display. Argh.
I'm due for an upgrade anyway (I try to upgrade my desktop and laptop in alternating years) so I went and ordered a Toshiba Satellite from Office Depot. Much like cars, laptops are pretty generic to me. I'll use what I have.
But - annoying. I'll be loading software, backing up the laptop files, and messing around with it for a few weeks.
