godd i need a social life. haven't gone out in so so long.
well anyway i just bought my laptop...should be coming in 1-3 weeks...not sure how i went through pretty much 2 years of college without one...

14" Lenovo IdeaPad Y450 - 418935U

it's kinda ugly..but eh i got a good price on's suppose to be "stylish"
for 538$ total.. i got...
System components

Intel® Core™ Duo T4200 ( 2GHz 800MHz 1MB )
Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
3 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1066MHz
14.0 " HD Wide LED 1366x768
Industry Standard Touchpad
250GB 5400
DVD Recordable (Dual Layer)
6 Cell Lithium-Ion
Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 5100
One year parts and labor (system battery: one year)

i wanted to impulsively by the most expensive version of this for 700$~ish...which would give me 4gigs of ram, a nvidia video card instead of an integrated one, and a 320gb HD, and a BIT faster processor.
but i'm only using it for school, boredom, youtube, and yeah nothing much. i'm not much of a gamer anyway.

on the lenovo site, it's listed as 599$ with a back to school coupon to take 50$ off making it 549$, but on the shareholders site, the same laptop is 509$ o_O and there was a coupon for another 5% off? or was it 4%...but yeah it dropped the price all the way to 483$ and free shipping...+ 0.0975% southern california tax and a 8$ recycling fee. my total came out to be 538$. not bad..not bad at all.

the only bad reviews i've read about it, is that it gets kinda warm and not so good with graphics..but biggie.

on another note~

i always seem to get the bad class for silent reading..and i was so bored at work today and my dam headphone jack converter for my phone to connect to standard sized headphones is like worn out or something..*sigh so i had no music to listen to...i felt like throwing my phone against the wall...i need a new mp3 player as well...i'll buy an ipod touch paycheck..
