My old Toshiba dual core laptop is in a slow death spiral. So, with my wife's credit card, ran to Best Buy and bought a new HP laptop. Thought I'd get a quad core, or an I3 or even splurge on the I5 super quick one. Got the I7 core - son said it is exponentially faster than the others and might not be outdated for 2 or 3 weeks. Woohoo!! Back fully on all my favorite sites.
