Laptop Killer...

So, I killed yet another laptop.  What the heck am I doing wrong?

I can't even count the number of nights I've enjoyed a few martini's or glasses of wine around the laptop while blogging, facebooking, or watching netflix. I mean, who keeps track? Of course, I have said drinks in their appropriate thin stemmed glasses, and never manage to knock them over.

This past weekend, I had a nice big glass of ice water, in a regular water glass...I was not feeling my greatest, sick...cough, cough... while preparing to watch a great netflix movie, and bam!!! Whole glass of water takes out the Dell.

I guess the biggest mistake I made was trying to turn it back on right away, who knew you should disconnect power and battery? I am not a computer genius! At work, I have a 4 digit extension that fixes all my problems!!!

Plus, I was in the middle of a fantastic horror movie! I wanted to see the ending!!!

Long story short, I left a few days later with a brilliant HP laptop with a ginormous 17" screen, greater memory, and windows 7. I am learning how to use this new technology and I'm loving it!!

Haha! Glad it turned out for the best! I'm going to have to replace mine soon. It randomly turns off from time to time, takes forever to get going, and I keep getting full hard drive messages even though I've uninstalled or deleted as much as I can.

Enjoy your new computer. I bet it's really fast!
