I bought some chicken sausages and onion last time, I made carbonala for lunch. Went to Best Buy to purchase a replacement PC at home since it's pretty old now. The new one is slightly bigger but has faster CPU and more memory and hard drive space. I am happy but surprised to see the decline in price of laptop PCs in the last couple of years.
