I'm not trying to be ungrateful, he was being helpful, but I wish he hadn't bought it.
My old laptop is 4 or 5 years old. I don't need anything new and snazzy, I use the internet and word processing. My husband is a computer guy. A few months ago the fan on my lap top died and they are really hard to replace as in everything has to come out that is on top- which is everything, the key board, mother board even the screen. Hubs managed to do it and the only casualty was my delete key, it broke off and so it was just a rubber nub, annoying but liveable. Then a few weeks ago my laptop fell off my lap (not unusual) and the battery tab broke. Annoying but as long as I didn't move or the laptop was plugged in it was fine. Then the puppy got ahold of the cord and chewed it (and the battery to bits). Hubs ordered a new cord, annoying but live-able. I needed him to order a new battery and I bought black duct tape to tape it on. This morning I was working on a lot of word files (hubs and I are both scout leaders and I am preparing for a new year getting everything organized). Three times while typing away the cord wiggled and I lost everything. I didn't complain to hubs just mentioned that it was frustrating. Hubs being Mr. Computer said enough was enough and we went and bought a new lap top. Apparently it as a phenomenal deal, its a dell and we got it for right around $200. I don't love it and its so different from my old lap top which I really like. My big issue is that this new one doesn't have a scrolling feature on the touch pad, it seems minor but I am a creature of habit. I love my old lap top, we bonded through a horrible pregnancy of my now 3 year old. Hubs insisted lap tops don't live as long as mine. Now I'm debating on insisting he return the new lap top. I don't really think we needed to spend the money, were going to Disney next month and I think it was a silly purchase.
Would you tell hubs to return it?
