Default New computer purchase record

I think the first laptop I bought with help here took me over 5 years. Mainly because I was too sick to get to the store, and I wanted to try before I buy. Subsequent purchases got briefer and briefer. Today i set the all time record. I bought a computer with less than an hour's worth or research. And the research was two online chats with sales people.

So what did I get. The only 14" HP laptop that I could configure with the result having Win10 Pro and an Intel i7. And for all I know, HP discontinued its 14" laptops and I got one of the few remaining ones.

And because I know I'll be asked this, I didn't opt for a SSD (in addition to a HDD) because pondering it was stressing me out and I didn't want to delay. Maybe next time.

My only disappointment in the configuration is I wanted a white computer and they that was not offered. So I got the gold one instead, which was the only not-silver one available.
