Today’s “Real life” math post is going to be a short but sweet one. I have been actively searching out information about buying a new laptop because I have had a few ominous signs that my current one is about to . . . ummmmm . . . end its journey.
So–I asked around. Here’s what I learned.

You will LOVE Windows 8.
HP is on its way out.
