Thanks, Dell - not!

Guess what I 'm going?? Blogging...while sitting on my couch - with my new lap-top no less!! Okay, mine and Drew's lap-top.

No thanks to Dell. We tired - or rather, Drew so tried to order one from their web-site. But they don't ship "internationally" - only to U.S. and U.S. territories like Puerto Rico.

Uh...we are like Puerto Rico.

Didn't you know that by the zip code at the end of our address? Or the fact that when you called at 3 AM -two times!- that you just dialed 1-and an area code just like you would if you were calling any state.

But the "customer service" person just didn't get it. Maybe it was his not-American accent...whatever it was we ended up buying the lap-top at the BX.

It doesn't have all the program we wanted, so we will added them in the next few weeks. But
I'm really enjoyed just sitting on the couch and blogging.

Great fun!

Hey Kel,
Try Costco.com. They sell Dell and I think they ship anywhere.
I'm jealous. Maybe next year we'll get a laptop. My 7 year old Dell dinosaur is on it's last leg. Isn't it sad that something that cost $1,000 7 years ago is practically worthless? Oh well!
Take care.
