the laptop dilemma

my trusty laptop has been with me through thick and thin for i’m guessing about the last 4 years. it feels like it’s been forever, but it really struggles running current apps. it used to be that having 768MB of ram was a big deal, but now i don’t think you can even purchase a laptop with that little ram.


i also can’t seem to stay true to my rule of not spending more than $1000 on a laptop. i don’t know where to bend. should the laptop be slower? should it have a less fantastic screen? should it have a smaller, slower hard drive? what to do? what to do?

these are tough decisions, but as i look at what the cost of my laptop will be, i think that i might just have to wait a while and save up. it’s a struggle, though, because i look enviously at christi’s new beautiful laptop.

the announcement of the new super thin apple laptop came just a little while ago and though it has definitely stirred a lot of talk, there are just too many things wrong with the laptop to really justify even considering it seriously. it’s pretty, though.
