New Toy

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.
