You see, I don't have your humility.
It's not that, it's more a case of the fact that, while I have just gotten a job, I also still need to save money- and the Satellite A660 series helps me to do that, while also allowing me to do the things I want to.
Of course..........I also would like to buy a computer for a close friend of mine. Semi-unfortunately for me, the "box" I'm intent on is one of those stupidly expensive Macs.
Oh well; at least it will be guaranteed to do the job that I envision it having.
