Bought used laptop from Pawn Shop
Great news. In the past, I have gotten some pretty good computers from the pawn shop. I went to one called Golden Goat Pawn Shop and bought a good HP for $150. I have to order a new power cord though and have ordered one from NewEgg.com. It cost $30 and should be delivered no later than May 2nd.
I am anxious to get back to doing C# app development. I should not have done this but I used my old HP power cable and it worked. The pc came up after updating and everything looks good. Will wait till my new power cable comes to use it. You can mess up a computer if you used a cable with the wrong voltage.
I am so excited about this. Yeah, I was going to buy a $500 Dell computer but I decided to check out a pawn shop and it worked out.
