Another Call From My Son In The Navy
My son John called again last night at 12am. He had just got off duty. He is planning on buying a laptop computer this weekend. He is leaning towards the Lenovo ThinkPad T61p He wants Windows Vista Ultimate, at least 2 gigs memory, and a 7200 speed hard drive. It is also Powered by NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M video card and comes with Intel Core 2 Duo processors. The Lenovo can accommodate all that and has built-in speakers and is very reasonably priced starting at about $1200.00 It also received good reviews from www.notebookreview.com and is an Editors Choice at PC Magazine with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and an Editors Choice at laptopmag.com. John was majoring in computer science in College and had completed 37 credits before joining the Navy.
Now for the Navy News, John said that he was picked to be on the "Navy Drill Team" but couldn't tell me much more about that until he gets all the details himself. He was exhausted when he called and was falling asleep while talking on the phone. Today is his day off so he plans on buying some food for his room and making a dental appt to get his teeth worked on along with several other things. I am still trying to get my daughter Cindy ( also in the Navy at Great Lakes ) to send me pictures that she took last weekend when she spent the weekend with her brother. Cindy is suffering from stress fractures from all the running and marching and is on light duty right now. As you can tell I am very Proud of both of my children that are serving our country with the United States Navy. :)
