I got myself a new laptop for myself when I head overseas. I don't know what kind of connection I'll have or even if I'll be able to use it to get online, but its a start. I've actually been looking at it for the last couple of weeks and trying to decide exactly what kind of laptop I want.
I'm not much of a PC gamer, so that wasn't an issue, but I found this little laptop that is built for DVDs and music. i need to get all of my CDs on MP3 and take them over that way. There were a few things that sold me on the PC, I knew what I wanted and what I didn't want, and of those few features I got a product that fits my taste.
Its weak in some areas, but those areas aren't my strong point anyway. I think this will work just fine.
