Last night I was watching TV and in the middle of tying off a bear arm (so didn't hit FF). I caught a commercial for am 11" Windows computer from HP fo $200 - a lovely cobalt blue one. I no longer pay much attention to Windows machines but have recently realized that having a portable Windows computer would be helpful. The $200 really caught my eye and I'm really high on HP these days. So I hit pause on the TV and did some research. It looks like it would serve my purposes perfectly. I ordered one from Amazon. If I don't like it, it goes back. Since I'm going out of town, I picked 'slow ship' in exchange for $1 off. They had been offering $1 ebooks which is fine but this time they offered $1 off ebooks, music or video. Nice. My MP3 cart is kind of bulging. Anyway, if it works out it will be way handy to have a little portable machine for various low level tasks. Oh and it only cost me $100 out of pocket. Between a fat Discover cash back bonus and some Amazon credit acrued, my totaly bill was $100 and some change. That was a nice little bonus.
Today is laundry. And maybe Goodwill. And Condo Internet. The Condo Internet people will be here at 5:30 to 'splain it all with food and drink in the lobby of the building. I go back and forth on whether or not. Depending on the complexity of setup, I will likely sign up and run both Comcast and Condo Internet in parallel for a month and then decide. I will absolutely be interested to hear what they have to say.
