Yay! I got a laptop.
Oh god. I got a laptop.
So now I can finally get around to getting wireless in the house -- and get yelled at for using it. Now I can finally work in the park -- and get dirty looks for being one of those jerks that brings his laptop to the park. Now I can work on a powerful, roomy machine -- and I have to reinstall all my apps on the new machine. Now I can play with new hardware toys like a touchpad -- and have to reinstall the drivers 4 times in a single day because of spyware interactions.
It goes on, but you see where I'm going.
It's an underwhelming, exhilarating experience, new hardware is.
