I Got My New Laptop!
It came in yesterday afternoon from Tigerdirect via UPS! DEWD! My new Acer Aspire 7520 notebook computer! Tigerdirect had it on sale, and I bumped up it’s memory to 4 gig! 4 GIG! Dual core… rock on! It does have Vista on it… but, to be fair, I am going to give it a chance… I’ll let you know how that goes… but one thing surprised me… the quality of the built-in webcam! It is a 2 megapixel webcam… and it has a GREAT picture! I may even do a DrBill.TV show with it! Cool!
This link may not last long… but here it is:
For you geeks, here’s the lowdown from that page:

GEEK OUT! GEEK OUT! (Pardon my excitement!)
By the way, I like the modular approach to the system… it made it easy to replace the two 512 meg DIMMs with two 2 gig DIMMs!
