I counted three times. The final tally of the votes via comment field was as follows:
- 3 votes
- 9 votes
- 1 vote
- 44 votes
- 45 votes
If you count the emails I received from four people, the total for #1 would be 4 votes and for #5 would be 48 votes. Either way, the winner is #5. Congratulations!
I'll contact the winner. There is no need to email me. I'm also leaving the comments on this post closed because I am both happy and miserable. My heart aches for those to whom I cannot give another laptop.
