Got a new laptop

My first offical “blog” type post.

I just got a laptop this past weekend at Fry’s. I was debating on whether to get
this
laptop at Amazon.com, or to get one on ebay,
or even to get one locally at one of the computer stores here. The HP xt125 was $900
after rebates at amazon, and I could get a custom made HP from their web site for
around the same price and get a free second battery and also an upgrade to a 15.1″
screen, but I would have California sales tax because they have a California store
as well, making it a lot more. I decided to go ahead and head out to Fry’s and see
how much they were there. They had an HP ze4210
for $850 after rebates, which the only difference was it didn’t have a CD-R/RW in
addition to the DVD drive. However, I don’t care about that because I would never
burn a CD on my laptop since I have a much better one on my desktop. I figured it
was only $25 more than the other one after taxes and I get to have it *now*, and
the ability to return it just by taking it back to the store rather than having to
RMA it and mail it back. Anyways, I really enjoy this laptop, and it gives me
something to do between classes and on long trips, although I don’t know when the
last time I took one of those is.
