Party time now!

Guess who is (finally, after about eight years or so) getting a new computer? Go on, guess!

I am so excited, you have no idea. Not only am I finally getting rid of this evil thing, but I might as well call the new one Zorro, because my dad and I made out like -bandits- on price. Seriously, even including a monitor and Microsoft Office 2010, we ended up paying less than -half- what we thought we would have to.

Seriously, best deal I have ever seen. Which, in my paranoid and cynical brain, makes me wonder what's wrong with it. But I'm refusing to give in, and choose to remain excited, so there!

Wow. These days an eight-year-old computer is practically a dinosaur. The first computer I actually bought from someone (rather than was made here at home) was showing its age when I finally got rid of it in May 2006.

It's impressive how much the prices have gone down, too. I bought a computer last year for work (my job relies on things not crashing, freezing, or otherwise being a pain in the ass on a constant basis, and my former computer was no longer cutting it) and I think it came down to about $400. The previously mentioned first storebought computer was $955.19.

In any case, if it'll make you feel better, just run a virus scan on it (Avast is good) and uninstall all the crap you don't need and you should be fine. Congrats!

Yeah, we do have Norton, and there's a guy from my parents church who said he'd transfer everything we want and set the whole thing up. Which is good, because I haven't the vaguest idea how to transfer files *laughs*

I paid a little more than you, but not a whole lot, which is nice. I'm wondering if with all these netbooks and tablets and such, the desktops aren't selling like they used to. Though the computer we were originally going to buy apparently went up in price, so who knows?
