I was lucky enough to get a new computer last month.  I gave my old one to my Mom, who was in desperate need of a new one.  Now we can finally communicate with Skype and our webcams and not experience any lag.

I am very happy with it, although I am still getting use to Vista.  This computer allows me to make DVD movies much better than my old computer, and much faster too.

I really like the clear side cover which allows you to see the inside of the computer.  I also have a blue neon light inside the case, which matches the blue light that comes from my new keyboard.

It is great to have a new computer!
