For over a year now I’ve been wanting to get a new laptop. I finally parted with the money and bought myself one. It’s nothing special (just a Dell Inspiron 1525) but it’ll suit my purpose and it comes with Vista. I don’t care what people may say (including myself from time to time) but I like Vista.
Yes, I said it, I like Vista. I like the sidebar – gadgets in particular. I downloaded the gmail and google calendar gadgets so now I can see it all at a glance. I like the look – it’s much sleaker than XP. I don’t know what they’re calling the bar at the top (that’s like the Mac toolbar at the bottom), but I’m even beginning to like that thing. I’m a little bummed I only have the Home edition of Vista. It doesn’t come with Aero so I don’t get the super cool graphics. Oh well.
