The topic: Okay, I know it, I admit it, I'm spoiled
Every once in a while, Brian and I have talked about laptop computers. We never looked at them, just kind of talked about what it would be like to have one.
Well, the Disney hotels all have high speed internet access. The last couple of times we went, we said "gee, if we had a laptop computer, we could go online". Well, I said "if I had a laptop computer...."
A couple of weeks ago, Brian said "maybe we should get a laptop before our trip in October". So, the next day, I checked our handy dandy CostCo coupon book and found a coupon for up to $400.00 off of Dell computers online. I went to the CostCo website, printed out some of the laptop pages they had and decided on a Dell Inspiron 6000.
It shipped last Friday. I also got a nice Targa case on eBay, a brand new one.
I'm think I'll use the new laptop for making movies. It won't be bogged down with all of the software I've got on this computer and it should work a lot more quickly. Besides it's more powerful. I'll disconnect my external Sony DVD burner off of this computer and hook it up to the laptop.
I'm really excited!
Brian did say "now, you have to learn how to use the cameras you've got".
Okay, I can do that.
