Happy Friday!

Word Designer said...

Oh. My. Goodness, but that is a wonderful new toy. How smart the two of you look together. I would say that it was very sweet of you to get yourself that new toy so's your hubby could play on the main computer, more often. Does he realize what a treasure you are to do that?

Congrats on your new toy. Yikes! Those specs, additional features, software -- so many numbers, don't even know what it all means. We always need an extra computer around here and great to have something portable. Sorry to hear you are still on the road to recovery. Have a great weekend and have fun playing. Best wishes, Tammy

That seems to be a great new toy! Most of the terms sound like Chinese to me though. I just want a computer to do what I want it to do - an FAST por favor, lol. Have fun with the new baby!

The wi-fi links are great. Moreover the clips present in the blog are also great. I find the laptop very attractive and want to posses a similar one.

CosmoGirl Carla said...

Ugghhhh . . . wadchajustsay???? Anne, you sound like a computer geekette! My eyes were glazing as I was reading the list of wondrous features on your new laptop. I am so not a computer person. It's an amazement I'm able to keep my blog going! LOL

Have fun with your new toy. :o) Sorry you're still under the weather. Get better soon!

Laura said...

OK Miss Anne-

I didn't understand a word of those specs, but I do know that is a laptop.
Embarrassing, right?

Keep typing!
