To buy or not to buy

I have been in 'buying a new laptop' mode for the past few weeks now. A deal that looked very promising fell flat on the ground and now I'm back at square one. Whenever my mom calls me she keeps asking me about the laptop and if I have got it yet. To which I reply, "I'm still looking around". I mean ideally I would like to wait to get the latest quad core processors, but as of now I'm looking at the dual core processors. I usually take time with buying certains things. Be it jeans, gifts etc. I just feel that somewhere deep down inside it has to appeal to me. Sometimes it takes a few seconds and sometimes it takes ages but at the end of it the feeling is always the same.

So my mom called me up yesterday and told me about this article she saw in the paper about glossy screen laptops which have some viewing problems. She said that she would type out the article and email it to me, as it was small and as she would not be able to explain all the technical details. She also told me that she mentioned something at the end and I felt her smile at the other end. When I checked my mail I saw the following at the end, the subtle remark glowing with sarcasm...

It read, "HAPPY WINDOWS SHOPPING".
