for John. We had to go buy him a new laptop yesterday.The battery in his old one died and it was so old, that the mfg no longer even made his battery any more. So we took advantage of the sale at Best Buy and combined with some Gift Cards he had won in various contests at work, were able to take and additional $200 off the cost of the laptop. Of course that all got added right back on and then some with Vista, Norton's and Word. Not to mention the service agreement and tax and such! He's having a good time now taking all of his work info from the old computer and putting it on the new one.
