New Tech Toy

When it comes to the latest tech gadgets, I must say I am way from savvy. This is not to say I am helpless and hopeless. I keep myself up-to-date to fit my needs. Anyhoo, over the holiday a pal gave me a new toy and along with my new HP color printer, click here for HP vouchers. I think I can retire all my paint brushes because I was able to manipulate photos into oil painting effect. I transformed this picture of sweet potato fries into an oil painting image in seconds. Hm... my next project will be turning a family portrait into an oil painting, without hours of hard labor.
So as I am playing with all my new toys, I began to notice my laptop is not as speedy as before. Perhaps because it is because I have been loading lots of new software. Regardless, perhaps it is time to buy myself a new laptop because mine is getting a little long in the tooth. This time around, I want a red laptop. Yes, I do consider style before functionality. Of course being a savvy gal, I can't pay full price unless absolutely necessary. I plan on taking an advantage of HP, Dell or Lenovo coupons. I usually discover applicable coupon deals after the fact but this time around, I will not make the same mistake. Do you have a new tech toy in mind for 2011?

  2. I think I went "Tech Toy" overboard last year! I think I'm ok in the tech department right now, though I wouldn't mind going a little clothes shopping this year :)

  15. No gadgets for me this year--at least I hope not. I just tiptoe on eggshells around my laptop hoping it won't die on me!
    Happy New Year!
