I know I hate my Sony Vaio with Windows Vista. I know I swear I won’t ever buy Sony Vaio again. Maybe if Sony Vaio gives me a free laptop with a five years warrranty, I may consider. Otherwise, I will ptooi whenever some promoters try to sell me Sony Vaio.
Beside this Sony Vaio, I also have a beat up Acer laptop which is over 3 years old. My son dropped it but that Acer is still working. Whereas, I took care of my Sony Vaio like a fragile piece of crystal but the motherfuckerboard, speaker and battery died two months after the 1 year warranty.
So, I was shopping for a laptop a few weeks ago. Initially, Dell retailer told me they are having some Dell computers fair. It turned out to be one of those ‘free useless printer and 1 GC thumbdrive’ fakey promo. So, I didn’t get a Dell eventhough I was a bit tempted by the ang pow red laptop.
This morning, hubby told me about the Acer 4935G model which costs only RM2,999 and have way better configuration than Dell. Here is the spec :

I was torn between getting a Mac and this. I figure…..I already have an iMac at home. So, why not get a Windows because it is so much cheaper compared to a Mac.
And now, I have another new notebook, the Acer 4935 G. Woot, the keyboard has touchpad volume control, fingerprint solution instead of password and other stuffs I have no use of. Who cares…Hahaha. Buy first, figure them out later.
Now, I can go back to blogging in bed, blogging in the park, blogging while I am out and blogging every where instead of being tied to my iMac on my working desk.
