Deferred Gratification

It's here! FedEx brought my shiny (well, matte-finish) new computer to my office at 9:00 this morning.

I've taken it out of its box, and I've plugged it in. I'm scared to turn it on because, you know, I'm at work and all, and it would be kind of obvious, because it's this large, sleek, black, gorgeous thing with big honkin' stereo speakers and everyone would know.

As one slash character said to another, my god it's huge. The screen is ginormous and soooo shiny! The deck is lovely and smooth and silvery. I have this little whirring ball of anticipation in the center of my chest. Shut up. It is totally not the same as all that different from distinguishable from lust. The salivation is only because I'm hungry.

You and your new computer should just get a room...

Hsh! Totally. We have one now...the living room. This thing is AWESOME. Just the display alone is a thrill. I haven't even tried playing a DVD yet.

I spent way too many hours last night playing with my new toy. They give me decent computers at my workplace, but I hadn't realized how much I was missing at home, or how long it's been since I had a really complete system. This one actually plays DVDs--which my last one stopped being able to do two years ago.

So it's nice, and I know we're going to be very happy.

Aww, I feel all warm and happy for you. Not that I get the urge to drool, not at all...

I'm surprised at what a difference it makes. They give me good computers at work: good, midrange computers loaded with the tools I need, and I don't think so much about the computer in front of me as about what I can see through the window it creates.

But this new laptop is SO much better than any computer I've had before that it's a thrill to sit down to it. The combined impact of the huge, brilliant high-def display, the fast processor, the fingerprint reader, and the large backlit keyboard, it's a whole new kind of experience.
