Time for a new home computer

Today I get my new work laptop. Horray! As a result, my office transfers all of my old data onto the new laptop. Unfortunately, this takes a significant amount of time. Usually 4 to 6 hours. As I try to get any kind of work done on my beast of a desktop computer, I am further reminded that I probably need to get even more serious about getting a new home computer. If I would have had to get anything done on my home desktop for any period of time, I know that I would have lost my mind within the first day.

So, while I'm not sure WHAT I am going to get, I do know that I am looking at laptops with a long battery life and a relatively compact size. To be honest, a fast version of my old work laptop would have been just fine. (Note, I did say FAST version).

I think that I am going to try to catch a good deal the day after Thanksgiving. However, this DOES usually mean getting up at the ass crack of dawn and waiting in line to get the best deal. I am not sure that it is worth it, but I am pretty cheap..... so I'll probably do it either way. Maybe I'll start the day off with 4 or 5 mimosas. Not a fan of bloody marys. Which makes me wonder about mimosas.... If I drink a 6'er of them, does it cancel out the fact that they are soooo girlie? Probably not, but that has never stopped me before.

I think this computer would be faster than your old work laptop right?
