I had occasion to get Seiren (the Dell laptop) out and put it through its paces, and I'm starting to think that even with the SSD it may have outlasted its utility. It's one year older than the laptop that was Dad's (the one on which I fixed the screen hinge) and I was curious about how well it would stack up; I've noticed that it is a bit of a sluggard. I have not tried to do much on Dad's old laptop except for using it to watch Seitokai Yakuindono, so I don't really know that it's much better than Seiren.
Anyway, I'm starting to think that I should save back some shekels to buy a new laptop. This one can be expanded only to 4 GB of RAM--it came with 3--and Win 10 runs okay on an SSD with that paltry amount of RAM. But then I compare its performance to my work laptop, which has a Core i5 processor and 8 GB. No contest.
Of course Seiren still looks basically new. I take care of my equipment.
What would be good would be a laptop with one of those fancy AMD processors that includes a high-zoot graphics processor. Then I might even be able to play WoW on the thing. That'd be a hoot.

Trying to get motivated to add more words to AV, and failing. Apparently it's not yet time to railroad; but when it is, I'll hit it with both barrels.
I am probably, in fact, less than a hundred pages from the end of the story. I just need to pick a direction and start writing.

Well, that's enough for today. Kind of tired and need to hit the hay.
