My new baby

I haven't named her yet, but she DOES keep me up at night.

I haven’t named her yet, but she DOES keep me up at night.

Because I tend to travel a fair amount (and like to stay connected when I do), I jumped when I first saw this little beauty. She’s an Acer Aspire and she looks like a laptop but she’s tiny. She fits in my purse and can pick up wi-fi hotspots over a very large range. She has a crystal-clear display AND she only cost me $400! Does it get any better than that?

I should add that this is not just another pretty face. This girl has a huge amount of disk space and runs XP just like my home computer. The only thing I’m not happy with is that it came with a trial STUDENT edition of Office 2007, but that’s no biggie. I’ve downloaded Open Office and am going to give it a try instead. It’s free and I’ve always wanted to play with it.

    And it’s pink! I love pink and love your website. I’m in San Diego and have married into a branch from Kirkpatrick opf Closeburn (I was googling and your site came up first). I have a whole book re: family history and will see if it will provide any insight. The Ramsey name is my hubby’s and his mother was a Biby and in their book is also John Kirkpatrick (which we named our firstborn son – How cool is this?! Love the internet.
