Laptops & Notebooks Galore…But None For Me

Everywhere I turn around, I see people using laptops. I can’t escape from it – it’s all around me. Funny thing is that kids are getting laptops too!

It seems that most of the good brands, even with the drop in prices for most things, have priced laptops way too high. I can’t afford one. ‘I’m willing to put in my current 2.5 year old desktop and a brand new external dvd drive to cut the cost. But unless I get that promotion money, I still won’t be able to afford a good laptop. My usage is limited – mostly the internet, a couple of games like NHL & FIFI 08, ppts-word documents-excel sheets for work, watching movies on dvds & ofcourse playing my rather extensive collection of mp3s.

That’s all I need. Surely I should be able to get a laptop within the next couple of months. I can’t wait to be rid of all these wires and save space. To be able to carry my computer to the living room or take it to coffee-shops so I can’t enjoy some wireless internet while sipping on a mocha frappe!

I’m looking at Acer models, like the one pictured in this post. Oh yes, she will be mine!

    Any laptop will easily support this.

    This I am not that sure about.

    Also, laptops get hot without continuous usage – so long downloads are tricky.

  2. Binny, I think you missed the point. When I stated my usage (mostly the internet, ppts-word documents-excel sheets for work, watching movies on dvds & ofcourse playing my rather extensive collection of mp3s) I was looking for the configuration. And I think you meant “Also, laptops get hot with continuous usage – so long downloads are tricky.” But if so, won’t most people who used it for work related stuff (10-14 hours easily) face problems?
