I was so excited to be able to buy myself a laptop, i have never had my own one although OH has one I was able to use. His computer is pretty old now and makes a bit of a noise when on but its had a new screen so is working ok. I thought it would be good to have a new one as a back up in case it breaks down.
I researched a few computers online but decided that I didn't want to spend a fortune and found a reasonable priced one which would do all i want and i could choose to have it in purple. I was swayed by the colour!
