I totally got a new computer this afternoon. I haven't had much time to play around with it yet but WOW it's fast and pretty! It's an ASUS TP500LA which can be used as a tablet and/or laptop. Way too awesome! This is exactly what I was looking for!
It's bittersweet getting a new computer; I'm excited for the new specs and speed BUT when I brought my laptop in to the shop earlier, I was expecting to pay for some upgrades...Not be given the news that she was going to laptop heaven.
So RIP old HP... You were great while you lasted!
"Dang video cards!!"
