Well, it looks like my laptop is truly on its last breath… tonight it took me almost 45 minutes to get it working. 😦 It’s been a great laptop and has lasted me almost 5 1/2 years, but alas, the time has come for a new one. Of course, there is never an opportune time to purchase a laptop, they’re just expensive, but I don’t want to wait until it’s completly dead before I get a new one and since much of my livelyhood involves a computer, it must be done. Oh well. So the search really begins.
I’ve been looking at some reviews out there and nothing has jumped out yet. I will be continuing down PC land… I know all you Mac lovers will say, “Oh, he’ll never learn,” but there are pros and cons to each and it’s easier and cheaper to stick with a PC. So it’s a sad day for good ole lappy. If anyone has any good articles or reviews on laptops, please send them my way…
Here are my current laptop’s general specs:
Pentium 3 650 mhz
384 MB RAM
40 Gb hard drive (it came with 10GB… ha!)
DVD player (no burner, etc.)
so, to say the least, a new laptop will be a very big upgrade.
