Well, I went out yesterday and purchased my first laptop computer. I have never had one before and I am glad I did it. I bought it in the US because if I had waited until I got to Germany I would have ended up with a German keyboard and I would have never been able to type again. I purchased the Toshiba Satellite M45-S269. I will now be able blog while drinking a beer or coffee in the cafe. It's going to be great! Have a nice weekend everyone!
