Default I bought it ! ! !

NO, not a new cruise unfortunately but a new laptop. Well it's not new but a refurbished corporate leased one.

I've been dying for a laptop since I retired from DuPont and had to turn in my corporate laptop. I've been unable to access the internet from any place but home. I've been watching Ebay for used ones for a long time but never bid on them because I never could find one that had everything I wanted, i.e. CD-RW/DVD, 1 GHz or greater processor, 20 MB Hard Drive, 10/100 Ethernet, 2 PCMBIA ports, and Windows 2000 Pro, for less than $500. But I found one for $479 that also came with a 7 month Dell warranty.

Yippeee.............now I need to sign up for Sprint PC satellite so I can get service anywhere in the country. Since we plan to start RV'ing full time in little more than a year this will come in handy to keep in touch with the CM boards.

But just think of all the cruise info you can research on that laptop...there is a silver lining in every cloud.
