I have to get a laptop soon.*

Highest nonstandard criteria is 'quiet'. All electronics stores I've ever been in are fairly noisy. I'm wondering if you have suggestions/recommendations/warnings (on quietness, on your laptop, on laptop purchasing in general).

I find that since I got my apartment I'm reluctant to turn on my computer because it hums and I don't like the sound. I don't remember this happening to me at Mudd. Probably because I had reasons I had to turn on the computer and so I turned it on and once/while my mind is consumed by things I don't mind the sound. But I've noticed the reluctance since Mudd, inhibiting me from accomplishing things that I don't need to do but I would do without the humming.

*[Given Periwinkle(my computer)'s insubordination recently (Not turning on unless I prod it for half an hour and hope), in light of its age (2001? The shock!), and the fact that I'm endlessly migrating it between rooms...]

Bridget's coming home today. She's traveling Japan and China Jan-Feb timeframe so if there are useful contacts I should pass on to her so if she gets stranded in strange cities...

This is definitely me
