Yesterday, my laptop died. She was a good laptop. She worked hard every day for four years. She went with me on school visits, helped me do presentations at conferences, took notes, kept all my stories, photos, videos, a ton of e-sticky notes (that I will not be able to recover), not to mention entertained me when I was in the hospital, or at home recovering.
Thanks for holding out until Windows 8 machines became available, girl. You were a good laptop. No laptop was prettier. I am going to miss you!
