I'm usually that way as well, but to the point of strong preference rather than vow, in terms of using stuff that's been battletested.

This purchase didn't leave me a lot of options given what I wanted. I needed a machine that could do two things:

1. Sit on my desk and be my linux slave, running a bunch of grotty command line linux tools whose documentation is in chinese

2. Easily travel with me to my sister's house, wherein I can use it to game with her while I'm there - a longstanding request I will not deny my baby* sister, whom I adore.

* I have two younger sisters - this one is 14 years my junior and will consequently grow old and die with the moniker "baby sister" if I have any say in the matter. Laugh | :laugh:
There's smoke in my iris
But I painted a sunny day on the insides of my eyelids
So I'm ready now (What you ready for?)
I'm ready for life in this city
And my wings have grown almost enough to lift me
