Yes the HUNK, ACER Aspire 5050.
We have been contemplating to buy a laptop forever(last 8 months). I have been harassing people asking for the brand they own, popular features, must-haves, prices in countries my friends reside/visit and ofcourse answering the "Why do you really need it?" once every fortnight when the search & research seems to get frantic and worry P about what his wife is upto. The answer ofcourse used to be, "This PC conked off, I need to blog after Joyce is asleep" and when this doesn't seem convincing and he has the "What the heck" look on his face I go about "...oh and yeah you can study" and that mostly always made sense.
So finally the laptop arrived with an additional 2GB pen drive and an optical mouse as a complementary gift. We love our loot. I have a couple of things with respect to the blog on my mind and will get to work with help from all who can extend a hand. Joyce loves to see herself using the webcam. Every time she sees it, she breaks into a jingle. I hope the excitement ends there.
