Only 3 accounts out of 6 have a balance and my total utilization is 8%. And it's only that high because of my recent computer purchase. That is the only reason cited for the decrease. I don't understand.

I would assume you charged the computer on a credit card, but just asking if anyway if you opted for a payment plan on the computer?

That would explain much. New account point loss + balance. It will rebound after PIF and "60 days for the new fresh account status to dry up". I think you already counted the loss from the inquiry. Temp score drop sounds about right. No worries.
