This is our oh so excited Sarah, on July 16th, 2008. The day her spring green DELL laptop arrived.
It was her Class of 2008 Graduation present. Her very own laptop. She patiently waited for it to arrive and when it did she knew just what to do as she is quite computer savvy.
Just look at her. She was so proud. We had a webcam built into it as the first measure toward electronically enhancing our house. We have been working on this plan which will allow Sarah to stay home by herself for longer periods of time. (I'll post more about that plan at a later time)
Well, let me just say the thing has been CRAP since the day it arrived. A $1,315.67 piece of CRAP. I felt in my heart it was a lemon. First the touch mouse never did work right, so they convinced us to get a cordless mouse. Then it would not boot up correctly and then she kept getting an overheating error message. Now the keyboard has just stopped working.
Ugghhh... So now we sit, waiting for a box to arrive to send it back. Why!!??? We paid for one year of third party on-site service. Doesn't on-site mean at my house? So why are we waiting for a box????
Sarah is so sad. She does not understand. It is breaking my heart to see her in tears. I told her it has to go to the laptop hospital. That's a concept she does understand. She is not as weepy now, but they better get this thing fixed once and for all, cause this mama is not happy and when the mama's not happy...
Deep breaths... The bottom line is, Sarah is without a computer so we will be posting less frequently for awhile. Stay tuned...
