I'm not telling you. Our proper computer which is actually quite new has been confiscated, so we're using the old sheddy one.

I'm proud of my laptop though. But I don't know what the spec is.

Yeah I forgot about my printer - the best since sliced bread!

It's a HP PSC (Printer/Scanner/Copier) 1355. It's the best thing I have ever bought. I like the fact I can photocopy (without computer being on!) and scan stuff.

I have a Nikon CoolPix 2100 however a plastic bit snapped off so I need to send it away for repair!

I have a cheaper model but it was fantastic value for money nonetheless. £60 from ASDA!
