New Toy II

So me and my new laptop have spent a weekend together and I am in love...

As I said the other day, this is my first laptop. I've used them for work, but this one was purchased to be my toy.

Originally I thought I wanted the biggest, baddest, laptop that I could find, but I soon changed my mind. Around October I decided to go the opposite direction. I wanted a lightweight computer. So I ordered up a Dell XPS M1330. After five excruciating days, I found out that I was denied credit. What!! Come to find out, I had clicked on the 'submit' button too many times so they had received like 5 apps from me in one evening. My bad. I was a bit miffed that they couldn't have contacted me and said.

"Excuse me Mr. Mike, but we got five apps from you in five minutes and were concerned that someone was trying to pull something".

I was a bit miffed and cooled my heels for a week. Come to find out, it was a good thing. The next week, it was leaked that Dell was going to make a 15" version of the M1330. It would have the same good looks, be a bit heavier, but still on the lighter side of the 15" units. Woo Hoo!, this was what I needed (wanted). The wait for them to release the thing was annoyingly long but I persevered, and on November 27, I ordered up a Dell XPS M1530.

So far I am really enjoying the thing. There isn't really anything that I don't like about it. I got both the 6 and 9 cell battery so I can have the best of both worlds, lightweight and longer battery life. To early to give a full review, but so far, so good. I am a horrible reviewer anyways, faults are just character to me. Spice of life.

An added bonus is with this thing being portable, I can use it any where. Which helps a great deal with Clyde the beast. Instead of being upstairs in our office, I can be downstairs at the dining room table. I can keep track of the guy in a large portion of the house. At the moment he is curled up in a ball in the family room. Nose to bottom. To bad I can't do that.....

Not yet. The thing that I am looking forward to doing is watching f1 races and keep up with the live timing... Too bad the races are all on the other side of the world. I'll need to get up way early...
