After 7 years of faithful service, my laptop finally bit the big one. And this is my new replacement! It's an HP s3000e, part of their "slimline" mini towers. My budget didn't allow for any super bells and whistles but it's a significant improvement. 19" widescreen too. And aside from the annoying security messages, the Windows Vista seems pretty cool, and its running all my older programs. Probably the best part about this package is the HP keyboard believe it or not. I'm a sucker for a smooth, quiet keyboard, and the one that shipped with the machine is pretty darn good.
