Folks have been asking me to post a picture of my new laptop. Here it is! It is less than 5 lbs, 12.1 inch screen. Plenty fast (Intel Duo 2 Core), has built-in media feature (Windows XP Media Edition, a DVD Burner, built in mic. and camera) and has 120 GB Hard Drive. Not bad for $1k! Thank you to everyone who contributed. The fact that it only took 2 weeks to raise the money for my laptop–something so un-essential and “fluffy”–makes me feel very much cared for. Thank you.

    I bought a laptop for a thousand bucks two years and plus ago and it truly is amazing how the quality of what you get for the dollar grows over time…

    Nice! Great weight. I never care how much it weighs until after I buy it, and then it gets irritating.

    On Tuesday I bought a new laptop with core 2 duo, 160 gig HD and 2 gig of ram. It’s like 6 lbs. Love it so far.
