The day the new computer went up (2nd time)

This morning I woke up early because of the delivery of my new pc, scheduled by courier between 8.00am and 14.00pm.

This is the 2nd time this pc is delivered to me, since the first time, at the end of April,  was severely bent in the middle, and the computer was returned to the store to be changed. The merchant ByTecno, thought, was really correct and immediately proceeded to change it on my report basis.

Now the baby is in the house! I've to install some good software...

It's a HP Envy 15, with a Full HD screen of 15,6" - I choose this machine because of the double initiative of HP:
1) taking back of a pc with i5 processor, valued 140 €, and
2) the return of 15% on the price of a HP laptop purchased.

This combination, and the fact that I've found it at a best price of 800 € instead of 1000 on the Internet, means that the total savings will be almost 50%!

Follows the specification of the machine (mine it's a J104SL but has same specs):
