New work laptop

As the office PC is 7-8 years old (still windows 98 and Norton seems to hate Windows 98 with a burning passion) I was given permission to buy a new computer, preferably a laptop (which had publisher on it) with a budget of £700. When you look at prices this seems a reasonably EASY thing to do but in fact most laptops come without Microsoft Office (and we needed Small Business) which is 239.99 on its own (and that's as an upgrade from Works). However I was lucky enough to find a new laptop with 1024 RAM and 60GB HD plus all the software and a memory stick for £687. I am pretty proud of myself. Unfortunately one of the reasons it was so cheap is because it was the last one in the shop and I think the OTHER reason is... it's pink. Apologies to any future youth ministers at All Saints!

Sounds like it needs a few stickers to give it some cred with the male users... Kath :)
