new laptop

I just ordered a new laptop from Tiger Direct — a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 1143-3FU. (Heck of a name, huh?) It was only $550, and has a couple of things I want that aren’t usually included in most consumer laptops: Windows 7 Pro (instead of Home), and a 7200 RPM drive.
This will be replacing my Dell Inspiron, which is old enough that it has a PATA hard drive, and can’t be upgraded past 2 GB.
I actually don’t use my Windows laptop that much — I use my MacBook for everyday use, like reading email, surfing, writing blog posts, and stuff like that. I still feel like I should have a reasonably up-to-date Windows laptop on hand, and this Lenovo wasn’t too expensive, and should hopefully last me for a few years.
