This is My first post using a laptop I actually own!My mom has claimed the desk top as her possession. So I called my cousin the computer guy for advice on what laptop to buy his response "why would you buy any of the junk at the big box stores? don't waste your money I am refitting a machine that will be perfect for you and only cost you about seventy bucks I will bring it by tomorrow". Tomorrow gets here at last and as usual he is right to think I almost wasted money better spent on other things. not bad for a 45th birthday present.I will post more later it's game time now.
