After more than 6 years with my old notebook (a HP Omnibook XE3 with a mobile PIII processor, 256 MB memory and a 20GB hard disk) I finally bought a new laptop.

I can recommend the web metrics package from Google, called Google Analytics. While it is not too complicated to insert the code you will need for using Analytics, I can recommend the WordPress Plugin Google Analyticator from Cavemonkey50. It inserts the code either to the header or the footer of your blog. I would recommend (as for all external scripts) you should insert the Google Analytics code in the footer by enabling the option “Footer tracking code”, so slow or unavailable Google servers will have almost no influence on your website’s performance.
