5) by now, task still open.
Several hours asking her needs (daughter, at university), several hours comparing and finding a recommendation.
Half a day going with her to a store, showing her the models I thought could be okay.
No decision. This one has too small arrow keys, that one has the wrong look, ...
Some more hours for more recommendations and discussions.

< 5 minutes in WalMart. Mrs. Wife is hard on laptops. The new one she got for Christmas is her fifth since I last bought one for me. There's no point in spending a lot of money or effort, since it's going to last only a year and a half or so.

b.) It is a more or less cloudless sky.
c.) The moon is clearly visible and ...
d.) ... around the moon a very uniform dark circle area (with a much much larger diameter than the visible moon) can be seen.
What is this phenomenon? Is this the halo?

And yes, sorry: I'm not able to take a pic with my cheap handy
