New toy!

I’ve been in need of a new laptop for a while now.  I can’t even upgrade my poor pretty pink Dell to the latest Ubuntu version.  My graphics card can’t handle it.  I bought it…6 years ago?  Maybe?  It’s been a while, anyway.  It’s slowing down, and sometimes the fan rattles, and it just can’t do anything anymore.  I’m in need.  In support of The Plan, we both need laptops that can handle work needs (I’ll need Windows, John needs processing power), and sure, we haven’t sold our house yet, but that’ll happen any day now, right?  And in the meantime, I really do need a new laptop.  Really.  So….why not get a cool one?  The coolest one out there?  We decided that new laptops would be our Christmas presents to each other, and once we found the ones we wanted, we didn’t see any reason to wait.  🙂  They arrived last week.  And mine is SO COOL.  I got the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro.  Lightweight, touch screen, pretty powerful.  It’s COOL.  And pretty.  I got the silver one.




  1. I’m not a fan of Windows 8, but I think that might change if I actually had a touchscreen computer. My last laptop came with it, but since it wasn’t a touchscreen and it aggravated me out of the box I wiped it and installed Win7. Post your thoughts on it once you’ve had a chance to play with it more.

    I wasn’t in any hurry to use Windows 8, but I heard that 8.1 was a vast improvement, so I took the plunge. So far, so good, but I’m mostly using it for web browsing right now, and it doesn’t really matter what OS I use for that. It certainly hasn’t gotten in my way at all. I’ll give it time and let you know.
