And this year the girls have a fair amount of homework that needs to be done on various websites. It is hard to monitor the homework and get anything else done. (except, maybe, folding laundry.)
So when Roper asked me what I wanted for my birthday I told him I wanted a medium sized laptop with a lot of battery that is suitable for web surfing. It doesn't have to be fancy, I don't play games. It doesn't have to talk to the printer. I can do that upstairs.
So, Roper did his google magic and found this laptop for a vary reasonable price. It does what I want it to do, isn't huge, and best of all, IT'S BLUE!
