I have some very sad news. Cohen officially is being replaced. My wonderful IT guys at work took a long hard look at it, did some reasearch for me, and came back with the news that my power outlet (or something) is shot and it would cost almost as much to repair as it would to get a new laptop all together.
So I'm officially in the market for a new laptop. Words can't express the anger that's running through my veins. I want to throw that thing against the wall. But anyway, welcome to adulthood, right? My dad and I went to dinner last night and were talking about how every paycheck there's always SOME sort of unexpected expense. Case in point. (Yes, my dad was in town, you wouldn't know because I haven't had the chance to blog!)
In the mean time, my IT man is giving me a loaner laptop.....pretty nice right? And right now I'm at working using an IT computer which has no firewalls. Woo hoo!
Anyway, better get back to work, just thought you could all drown in my sorrows with me.....first the ipod goes in June, now the laptop, and my phone is definitely knocking on death's door. Sweet. Now I just need my tv to break.
Oh yeah, suggestions for a new computer? My last one was an HP Compaq, which I really liked, minus the power problem. It seems like Apples are kind of the current thing, but I feel like a total idiot when I try to use one. Could I really transition over? Seriously people, I am NOT computer savvy, so don't say, "Oh you'll have no problem" if it's not as easy as just sitting down and using it. All I need is something that plays dvds (for those coast-to-coast trips,) lets me get on the internet, isn't slow, lets me download music, and allows me to type up an occasional Word document......that's all I can think of for now. Nothing too fancy.
