    It's actually a combo birthday/20th anniversary gift, since $ is tight with his unemployment. His 47th birthday is today and our 20th wedding anniversary is coming up on Oct. 7th.

    I got him a "Notebook Computer" to help him with his job hunting.

    Does this look like a good model?

    It's truly a low/no-budget, entry-level, no-frills model... perfect for these hard economic times.:tongue:

    Actually, I did order a REAL one for him (this is his backup until it arrives) 'cuz Costco had a great deal last week and he does need one for work.

    Next time Missy asks me for her own computer, that's what I'm going to do. Love it!

    That's what Son #2, computer guru, is getting for his birthday! That's hilarious!

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    husband said you are his dream woman! No frills! HA HA... I said she ordered us one as well. He said it would likely work better than his current one.
    I laughed a little too hard when I saw this post!

    AWESOME!!! Perfect for any budget!!!

    I must do this for my husband. He will love it!

    For an upgrade you could use one of the $10 scientific calculators!

    You could even use a binder with the display thingy, where you can slide a picture into the front and see that instead of the front of the binder.

    You could put a copy of the front of a laptop, or put a picture of a farmer standing in a dell (A dell is a secluded hollow or small valley usually covered with trees or turf.)

    THAT might be very funny.

    That would be the only model Tony could use.

    You are too funny girl and absolutely brilliant. I love it - might have to borrow the idea for difficult child 2 the next time he bugs me about getting his computer time back.
