This time it is true! After I found out my friend Chris was keeping his laptop I asked my brother Greg to see if he can find me one. He is the brother who is a computer programer and was able to get a used Toshiba for me! He sent it by UPS and I got it yesterday! I love it! It is so much faster and I will be able to use other places then my computer table! I will keep the table top around for now. Just incase.

Oh blue! Congratulations! You won't know yourself with a laptop. Good idea keeping your desk top as a back up.. It can't hurt and you never know when you might need it.. I hope you don't.

I stopped playing them on my old computer because the games would freeze up or take forever to download,if they did! So I am very happy with my laptop!

Hi blue, Congratulations! I got my laptop used also from the guy that fixes all my computers. It was dirt cheap and I love it! Just a word of advice...don't get rid of the desk top at all. I kept mine stored in a closet and I was so so glad that I did. a couple of times my computer needed work and I was grateful to have the back up. Once a drink got spilled into it and killed the motherboard and that cost over 100.00 to repair. Since then there have been no drinks near it. Well, till the other day. I was packing to move and I momentarily set my coffee cup next to it while I cleared off the entertainment stand. Out of nowhere, in barrels my 2 yr old grandson and crashes into the desk, sending the coffee flying onto the computer. Luckily it was a travel mug and only a small amount got into the keyboard. My computer guy checked it all out and looks like I lucked out this time.

I won't be getting rid of my tabletop. It will be stored away for emergencies! I know now to get drinks away form the computers! One time I spilled water on the keyboard and that was the end of that! I did it again,this time with milk,not long ago and had to get a new keyboard! I have not had any computer problems,except for the keyboards and viruses!

Wow! Congratulations! Now you can work anywhere. Ever since I started working online, I am already using my one and only laptop so I am really taking care of it. I don't have my own place at home so I have to work at the kitchen most of the time especially when everyone is still sleeping. I am planning to have my own workplace at home also but as of now it is still a plan. Have a great day blue!

I have my computer desk and that is where I am using my laptop now. I know I can use it while sitting into my recliner but I have not tried that yet! I will get a tote bag so i can take it places in the future! I don't have WiFi yet but maybe someday!

I am getting more done on this laptop! When my tabletop started getting so slow I stopped using it for playing my games and it took so long to down load stuff from the internet! Not anymore! I am very happy with this laptop!

Good for you! And yes, keep the computer table for now. It will be useful for a lot more stuff and not just to "house" a computer. It can be a study table or something to put your stuff and even a permanent spot to put your laptop to when not in use.

The computer table has not only been used for my table top computer. It has always had a plant on it. I always have a kleenex box on the table along with some notebooks and now I keep my laptop there. I don't think I will ever get rid of my computer table.

That's great! I'm thinking about a laptop for my next computer. Mine is a dozen years old and probably only has a year or two left in it. I would love to be able to work in front of the television or--although I know it's counterproductive at bedtime--relaxing in bed before I sleep. I could get a lot more done.
