It has been long, long overdue. I bought a new laptop at Sam’s Club of all places last night. It’s the HP DV2047CL which has an AMD Turion 64 X2 (64-bit, dual core) HP DV2047CL.
Jay created an OS CD for me last night so I could wipe all the preinstall crap off of it, and I spent the next couple hours getting all the drivers reinstalled.
It’s a fast machine, I hope it lasts the 4.5 years my Sony has.
