My Lovely Laptop
This is to pay homage to one of the few members of my "Tech Inner Circle" (I call them the TIC for short): my laptop.
While not the first laptop I've ever owned, my HP Pavilion dv9700z series notebook is without a doubt the best.
My laptop brings ALL the kids to the yard, young and old. It seems to attract a lot of attention everywhere it goes; for one, it's HUGE. That's a 17" widescreen you're looking at there...much bigger than some people's televisions. It's got a sleek black wave design on the outside and sports a shiny silver surface for the keyboard (which features it's very own separate numeric keypad. Heavenly!!)
More importantly, though, my laptop has everything a person could need. It's got a built in webcam and microphone, located above the screen (some of the pictures on this blog, especially in my post about my Sidekick LX, were taken with the webcam), 4 USB slots, an SD card slot, a TV expansion port, and (my favorite): a remote control!!
I've had this computer for almost a year now and it has remained my faithful companion (except for the one day an automatic update forced me to restore it to factory settings. I hate updates grrrr), always showing me crisp movies and allowing me to view everyone's lovely blog everyday and giving me great wireless Internet connectivity.
People don't always stop to think about just how much our computers do for us. I mean, my computer is my network to the world. Without it, I'm shut off from Internet society and from the wonderful world of DVDs (my television is so ancient I'm surprised it's still in color). My computer enables me to write and submit the articles I write so I can get paid. It holds all of my downloaded music so I can listen to it from my new computer speakers at home. It's portable (albeit heavy), so in theory I can carry it anywhere I go.
My computer is truly a great device. One day take some time and show your computer some love for everything it does for us :).
