my little sister, britt borrowed my laptop and the next thing i knew my wireless card was broken. immediately, i went out and bought a new one because not being able to access the net makes me frantic (how horribly reliant i am on technology, but then again, aren't we all?) anywho, i just think that's a calling for a new reliable notebook (one with 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM - 2x512, 80GB Serial ATA drive @ 5400 rpm, Superdrive 6x, and AirPort Extreme Card & Bluetooth.) Smell MacBook, anyone?
But this is making my purchasing power tough.
