Oh-My-Birthday!

I am the first to say that the best things in life are free....but there are some pretty wicked awesome things you can get for money.

This birthday was the best birthday ever-I got some extra sleep, Hubby took care of all the meals all day...oh and I also finally got a laptop!!! Would you like to see my fourth child? Of course you would.

It's a....HP TouchSmart! Isn't it adorable?

Awwwww.....and do you want to see the coolest part? The reason the screen swivels like that is to pop it into tablet mode, like so:That stylus is there so that you can WRITE ON THE SCREEN. In your own handwriting. Then it types what you're writing on the screen! It's awesome to watch TV episodes and movies on too-just pop it in tablet mode, click on full screen, and it's like a mini portable TV. Call me old fashioned, but I feel like I live in Star Trek or something...I mean, the girl who doesn't even have a cell phone has a flippy touch screen laptop.

It's an ironic miracle.

I should be working right now...especially since that was part of the reason that I said I wanted a laptop....and I will. Right after I finish uploading a background, changing my admin name, putting in all of my bookmarks-important stuff like that.

The moral of this excited blithering? I have the best, most thoughtful husband in the world....and, thanks to him, a super awesome laptop to boot! Hooray!

oooooo-love your new laptop! :)And Happy Birthday! I wanted a MacBook Pro but really, the tablet thing is almost enough to make me change my mind. Very cool. Being technologically challenged and out of touch, I didn't know there was a laptop with a tablet on top. Definitely going to have to check that out. Enjoy your new toy and thanks for sharing. :)
