With Christmas around the corner, I’m shopping around for a new computer because my 3 year old laptop is going to say goodbye anytime soon now.
I’ve had changed the hard drive, expanded the RAM, cleaned the internal and also replaced the external casing. Yes, my dear old laptop has been through some really tough times
But it has served me well and I’m *really happy* with the laptop that I am finding a hard time choosing a new one.
Hubby has almost given up on me and resignedly suggested that I just buy the same model again since I like it so much. You see, I love its widescreen display, its springy keyboard and its lightweightness but I do hate the location of the CPU and the USB ports.
He’s suggested Toshiba, a laptop brand I’m not familiar with but I thought this black beauty looks nice:
Toshiba Satellite L505-GS5037 TruBrite 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black)
- 15.6 inches!
- only 6 lbs!
- 2.13 GHz Intel Core i3-330M dual-core processor
- Windows 7
- US$708 – I’ve got to check if this is the model he has in mind hahaha
He’s also asked if I might want a netbook but no, I don’t like tiny, little laptops with tiny, little screens even if they fit easily into a handbag. No, thank you, I’ll take my widescreen any day.
Lastly, he loves the iPad. Ever since its launch, he’s been going on and on about how wonderful it is and how much I’d love it since I can read ebooks on it, I can surf the net with it, the kids can play electronic games on it and we can all watch movies or listen to music on it. In other words, the iPad is for EVERYONE.
Hmm…as much as I like the iPad, I don’t like sharing my laptop with anyone! I have to share almost everything with everyone in the house, I like to keep something (other than my pads) to myself.
Honestly, I’m not as excited about the iPad as I am about the Amazon Kindle. You know how book crazy I am, right? Initially, I wasn’t all bothered with the teeny, tiny 6″ display but now that they’ve released the 9.7″ display, mmm, you’ve got MY attention
He can have his iPad. I’ll take a laptop anytime. I wish they’ll make laptops that last forever. Then, I won’t have to have a headache choosing a new one.
Then again, if they did, there’ll be no shopping, no trade, no economy and no money
