I don't know what made me think of it, but Hewlett-Packard just doesn't sound as fun as Happy Platypus does it? And speaking of platypuses (heh, say that 3 times out loud), the male platypus actually has a small venomous barb on the back of its hind paw. There's your obscure mammal fact for the day!
Now back to the computer-company HP... I've been a Dell man myself for the past few years, but when I'm ready to upgrade to my new system (hopefully later this year), I'm pretty sure I'm switching over to HP. I've just been hearing some really great things about them and not too many negatives. Plus, they have a pair of great coupons if you're looking for a solid desktop:
$200 off any customized HP Pavilion Desktop PC configured at $799
Valid online only. Use coupon code DT9910.
$300 off any customized HP Pavilion Desktop PC configured at $999
Valid online only. Use coupon code DT9830.
Both coupons are valid through: July 2, 2007
Terms: Valid online only. Limited supply available. Limited to three uses per customer; one coupon per checkout. Not valid with Instant Rebates. Restrictions apply. (For complete conditions, see "Coupon Information" in the Customer Service section of the HP Home Store.) Coupon discounts are not combinable with instant rebate(s) or free gift offers. HP will apply the higher of the two discounts.
