HP-2000 and its true cost

Recently, I purchased and received an HP 2000 series PC. This system has a Pentium Mobile 2.4Ghz Dual Core CPU, 4GB of memory, Wifi, and USB 2.0 ports. There are also other specifications on this system, but I won’t go into that. What I will go into is what it would end up costing me in the end.

This will include not only the actual purchase price, but the cost of making sure the system is properly serviceable, and will suffice even at its state of quality for a period of time.

Today was a somber day being the 10th anniversary of the terrorist murder of thousands of innocent people. And yes, that is how I see it. Every one calls it an attack which in my opinion refers to a conflict which means one group conducting a war against another group which will be understandable if a vast majority of the people murdered were military. However, nonetheless, I did a lot to avoid television today, as I don’t have confidence in commercial driven media to show proper respect. I did however spent the day finding things productive to do. Talisa got her walks, and I wrote a few blog posts to pass the time. For dinner, I made pasta, and shortly afterwards, made a couple of phone calls.

As for plans for tomorrow, I will consider walking Talisa along the new long route if my ankles are up to it. I will also have to compose a couple of email, and phase out the old house line for the wifi phone completely. I will like if Chris will be able to help me go grocery shopping, but he is never on time for such. Otherwise, I will think of a name in the case I can get the Pit Bull the woman is potentially offering, and get a list made of what I need for the store.

OK, after a bit of research, it would seem as if the 95xx from RIM would go again exclusively to Verizon. Maybe, a 9520 would go to AT&T, but for some reason – no RIM Touch screen phone for T-Mobile. This a bit of a shame as I was hoping for such.

Now, I am forced to have to be prepared to make a decision on my future that would not have everything I need and want. With the possibility of a $50 everything plan coming to T-Mobile, UMA will not be as important since most areas I go to has cellular coverage. However, UMA is still valuable. So, I would have to decide which of the two phone I would want.
