After an 8 month debate, I've finally given in. I couldn't be happier.
I know it's a good decision, because yesterday I bought a netbook (tiny laptop), and I just couldn't get myself to open it. So, I decided it just wasn't the computer for me. Today I made an exchange. I know several friends will be disappointed (namely Dallin, Tyler, Britton), and I'm sorry, but I just couldn't help myself.
It didn't help that I found out today that LaTex and MatLab are going to be my life for the next four months, so I might as well be happy on the computer I'm using them on.
AHHHH! Now I have to starve all semester to pay for it.
