Ah…the smell of new pencils, my Dawson’s Creek trapper keeper and my trusty Paula Abdul lunch box – going back to school in September didn’t get much better than that! Until now of course…
These days, Paula is tired (Straight up now, lemme tell you!) and Dawson has been replaced by the newest and fastest laptops you can find. If you are like me, once you get over the MAC/PC thing, the choices on the PC side become truly dizzying.
Truth is, it comes down to what’s inside (at least that is what Oprah says). But as a computer shopper, I want to pick what’s inside! If I can’t do it with men, then I sure as hell want to have control over my electronics. And while I may not know much about all that stuff inside the computer, I know want small and fast (er…uh…don’t quote me on that) !
Companies like Dell have made their fortune off of allowing customers to choose exactly what they want in their computers. Amazingly, it took a while for it to catch on, but now ALL the best computers out there are fully configurable through online stores. Case in point, and one of our faves, HP. The HP Pavilion dv6z series, which you can build to your own unique specifications, is the bomb.com. AND, even better, it’s on sale for the next 48 hours. Yes, you can get your own sick laptop starting at $579.99.
The option to make something all your own (especially if you can make it all your own on the cheap) doesn’t come along often, so don’t miss this opportunity. Just think of all that money you’ll have left over come the fall….
