Today is my 37th birthday and I received quite a nice surprise from my work. Last week our IT staff offered to giveaway lots of our old laptops. These were primarily old Dell monsters that I thought would be great as a computer for my kids to use as a desktop. The day before the drawings were held they added a couple of Dell Latitude C400s that were actually pretty dang decent models (1.33 GHz, 1GB RAM, Windows 2000, Office XP, etc.) and I put my hat in the ring via email since I was off in Alaska. I returned to work this morning and found the docking station and C400 on my desk as I was one of the two lucky winners!
I now don’t have to build or buy my girls a computer and have a very cool small laptop that they can use around the house for school and fun. What a great way to start my birthday!
