I know I have been leading ya'll on about this SUPER AWESOME package that I ordered late last week. But the tease is over, in this post I will unveil what, exactly what was that I purchased. And how I came to own it.
I will start with the unveiling.
Now for some much needed background.
A few weeks ago my Uncle Tom was in town from
We are sitting around the dinner table at my moms just talking and Tom mentions that Janis, in her spare time, buys busted or refurbished laptops, and computers from ebay, puts new parts in them and resells them back on ebay. So we get to talking and he says that most of them are just missing a power cord, or for whatever reason did not pass an inspection at the factory.
A few days later I email Janis and ask her about the quality of the computers that she buys and sells on ebay. She told me that she had one that was brand new that did not pass the inspection at the factory that she just bought for $1000 bucks buy would sell to me for $700 (shipping included). I reply to her email and she tells me a little about the laptop, but says nothing about a built in wireless card. This was going to be a deal breaker for me. The #1 option that I was going to need was a built-in wireless capability.
I pick up the package from the post office on Wednesday. Now I have to get a wireless modem. I was going to just order one from southwestern bell. But then I would have to wait a couple of more days before I could get on-line. So I said screw that noise and hit Microcenter.com They had some on sale so I bolted out there and picked one up for 50 bucks. Now I have never done some thing like this before but I new I could do it.
Now for the best option. Are you ready for this, It has a built in MICROPHONE!!! Do you have any idea what that means? Well I'll tell you what it means. I means that I can now record myself saying something really fucking funny and then post it as a blog post.(that is when I figure our how to do that.) How awesome will that be? It will be TOTALLY FUCKING AWESOME!!!
Now I just need to set up a home network so I can transfer files from my PC to the laptop and vice versa. I need to transfer all my music, and pictures. So I can share them.
I bought this laptop, (btw this is my first post written from the laptop. YEA!!) for $700 buck and it retails for $1500, not a bad buy if you ask me. Plus I can pay my aunt whenever I get the cash to do so. I will probably send her 100 a month.
I have some more stuff to play with on this thing . So peace out, and thanks for reading!
