I’ve just finished editing the new TANcast and I forgot to mention two things…
1) That I’m doing these blogs every day this month and
2) I’m finally getting a new laptop!
If you don’t know, my laptop suddenly died on me while at a show in Hollywood a month or so ago. (It was very sad) I Googled some stuff on my own and couldn’t get it to turn on. Then I took it to Noah who tried a few things and inspected it as best he could but he couldn’t get it to turn on either. So I finally decided to take it to the “Geek Squad” at Best Buy…my “Geek” barely touched the thing and told me he wasn’t sure what the problem was…probably needed a new mother board. (Really? You’re the “Geek” and my buddy Noah did more than you did to examine this thing. You suck.)
So basically, the old laptop is dead and gone. A sad situation made all the sadder by the fact that my wife’s iTunes library was on there. But also that was the laptop I used when on the road for things like graphic design, editing TANcast, editing videos..etc. I do have a “back up” laptop that a friend gave to us a few years back but it is sloooooooooow. I couldn’t even load PhotoShop on it. I have to boot it up, go for a drive to Kansas and back, and THEN it’s ready to use.
Now I finally have some cash to get a new laptop. I’m leaning towards an HP but that’s just because that’s what I’ve always had. Any suggestions? I need to be able to run PhotoShop, open office, Audacity, Skype, and the internet (duh). Anyone have a favorite laptop make and/or model they’d like to champion? One quick stipulation: If you’re going to say “Mac,” save your breath. I was born a right clicker and I will die a right clicker.
My name’s Tim, I’m a PC, and hating on Apple was my idea.
