Christmas Gift Idea
It’s that time of year again. Time to start getting serious about planning one’s Christmas shopping. Even though I don’t have the resources right now to do anything about it I *have* been doing quite a bit of “window shopping” as it were, looking for that ideal gift idea and I in several cases I think I’ve found it.
You see there’s a bunch of family members that either don’t have computers or the computers they have died some time back and after a lot of looking around I’ve found something that would be just perfect, a Dell Latitude Laptop. This machine, while admittedly not exactly state of the art bleeding edge, is light years ahead of the dead machines (which could only run windows 95!) and is infinitely better than trying to use the internet on a low end cell phone.
What’s more is that because it’s on sale for 46% off of it’s regular price, if I could lay hands on a few thousand bucks I could afford to get enough of them to outfit everybody in the immediate family that needs a computer.
I also like very much the fact that it comes with Windows XP as opposed to being saddled with the resource hogging nightmare that is the more recent versions of windows. Besides, Windows XP means that I’d be in a fairly good position to handle the inevitable tech support calls if there should ever be a problem. I couldn’t support vista or seven because I have very little experience with vista and none with seven.
Now all I need to do is find a way to make about $3,000 appear on my kitchen table and I can start buying them up and getting set to surprise a bunch of people for Christmas!
Yep. That’s gonna happen.
