Upgrading In Progress…..

Will be too busy backing up my files in preparation for my new laptop to blog. Hence there will either no updates or sporadic ones for a week or more. I have been resisting the urge to upgrade or even make the switch from a desktop for about 7 years but like they say…RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!

Anyhow I’ve already placed an order and so am anxiously waiting for it’s arrival! My very first laptop……*sighs* Hope I won’t be disappointed cos I wasn’t really willing to part with that sum of money. A desktop would have been relatively cheaper.

Here is what I got…..
