Don't worry about getting crazy shit you don't need. One thing that is a godsend for me is an HDMI port on my laptop. Allows me to download movies/tv shows and easily connect it to my TV to watch it in great quality. Good call. I'll rack my brains for a bit and think about whether I actually need my computer to do anything that requires actual horsepower and just pull the trigger on something that seems adequate for the tasks at hand. In reality, the new computer I'm getting for work will probably be well above anything I'd want to shell out for on the consumer end, capabilities-wise. If I manage to set things up so I can work 100% from home in the near future, there'll be no need for anything beyond a browser, iTunes, and a CD burner. Lane post I have a "friend" who removed me on fb because I told him to give it a rest when he was spouting off like 5 statuses about everyone's a pansy and should be grateful Osama died, etc. He called he a pussy ass bitch when I said carry on with your witch hunt cuz he was acting like an imbecile, lol. Very well fashion related because it furthers my contempt for people. You realize you can hide people's posts so they don't show up in your news feed, right? That's what I do whenever someone's spouting too much garbage or checking in on foursquare every five minutes to say they're at Lowe's buying lumber or something.
