Unfortunately she also reassured me that my dad was "making sure it worked properly" before they sent it to me.
MY DAD IS THE RUINER OF COMPUTERS. EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES TURNS TO SHIT.
By the time I get it, he'll have clicked on approximately 52 spyware-installing advertisements and downloaded at least 3 "helpful" weather programs for me. GODDAMNIT DAD WHY MUST YOU TRY TO BE HELPFUL IN A FIELD WHERE YOU ARE LITERALLY THE WORST CANDIDATE EVER.
Sigh. I really hope I get it in the same condition it was originally in, without any "daddy modifications" - ie, broken.
