I have a new computer! I'm playing on my new, little HP Pavilion dm3 right now. I like this little guy. It has a 13 inch screen, tons of memory and I haven't wanted to pitch it across the room yet. I chose the computer WITHOUT a cd/dvd-rom. It's external and this makes this sucker so light it's not even funny.
Now, I just have to wait for my new version of Family Tree Maker and I can go wild at the library again. I'm just not sure yet if I want to put iTunes on it or wait until I can afford another 1 TB hard drive. The current plan is to take all extraneous stuff off the old computer, plunk it on a desk from which it shall never move and just use this one for my on-the-go computer. The old one will be the gaming/movie/music computer. I figure I'll add PCStitch to this one so I can design anywhere. Basically, this one will be for research, though.
That's the plan, anyway. We'll see how it goes. I just have to avoid the temptation of ZooTycoon and Civ III, which I haven't been able to play on the other due to memory issues. If I clear the huge database programs off the old one, though, I should have enough memory to use it for them. I hope.
