Back to school, back to school.

By the end of the summer, I usually start itching to get back into school. Mostly because I like shopping, any form of shopping, even if it's just for school books and writing utensils. Another thing about being married...it's like you're double shopping. Not only do I get new school stuff for myself, I also get new school stuff for Kendall. 

So this weekend, we're out getting printer cartridges filled and using up our OfficeMax coupons, and I turn to Kendall and I say, "hey, let's get you a laptop!" First of all, if you're in college, a laptop is a necessity. Second of all, sharing is only kind of caring, until you're done caring and you want your laptop all to yourself. 

Anyways, ever since we bought Kendall a laptop (like two days ago), I'm suddenly obsessed with getting a new laptop. Mine is about 4 years old, which is basically a dinosaur in computer years, and I think I deserve an upgrade for my senior year of college. These are a few I've been looking into, basically based on price and cuteness, which probably isn't the best way to decide on a laptop. I'm asking you adorable computer savvy bloggers to help me out with this one.

Ooooo, ahhhhh!
So this is the same laptop as Kendall. We like to be a matchy matchy couple, and I seriously fell in love with it as I stared at his smiling face exploring it's undiscovered lands. But, do I really want the exact same one as my husband? In the exact same color? Hm.

This is probably my favorite of all the ones I've been looking at.. It's adorable, and looks like diamonds. I heard once that diamond laptops are a girl's best friend.

3. And of course, Macbook Pro.

This is a little out of my price range.. but if I sell my other laptop and save up I can definitely do it. I'm a little scared about having to learn how to use a Mac, but everyone tells me they're so much better than windows computers. But it's expensive. And really expensive.

See my dilemma? Input? Go!


  1. So I work in IT and hear geek talk everyday and have sadly picked up on it... Obviously, the Mac is going to be the best. It's not hard to get used to, but you licensing for Microsoft software tends to be a little bit pricier than if buying for a Windows computer (like Office, etc.) so that would be an added cost. The Sony has better hardware so that is why its a little bit more expensive than the HP, but unless you are super concerned about space on your hard drive (the Sony has a 640GB hard drive and the HP only has 320GB), the HP is a great deal! You could always get a skin cover so its not matchy matchy! (:

  2. Oh my gosh. We are just the same! J got a new laptop so I had to get an iPad so we could be even! I loveeees you guys. I have a Macbook Pro and it's delicious, but blogging is super difficult for some reason on the Apple! I don't understand! I love your blog, and I love your love.

  3. I love my Mac so my choice would be the Macbook Pro but if you get it, make sure to get a Microsoft for Mac package because it will be a lot easier for school. BUT that Sony is awfully pretty... it looks like it sparkles :)
