Buying a new computer can be overwhelming, but a little research can go a long way.
The first step is to think about what you will be using your computer for. If you will only be surfing the internet and checking your email, a very basic machine will probably suit your needs, but if you are going to be doing a lot of gaming or video editing, you may need something more powerful.

Denver's favorite hostess and burlesque queen, Vivienne VaVoom, takes on Stag Social Club.
The Denver Post writer Bill Husted once opined, and I paraphrase, -- in Denver, everything is six degrees of Vivienne VaVoom (aka Michelle Baldwin). I take that to mean that if you want to be near the sizzle and sparkle of the culture quake in Denver, then Vivienne VaVoom is your epicenter.
Baby, It's Not Cold Outside. But we need a little Christmas anyway.
The term Christmas in July can be traced to Southern hemisphere celebrations -- for countries that celebrate Christmas but where the winter months fall around July. In the U.S., sponsoring a Christmas in July celebration became popular at summer camps for children in the 1920s and 30s. But it took a Hollywood film directed by Preston Sturges to turn the phrase into a part of the vernacular of the common people.
