So Amazon India has impressed me by delivering the laptop to me 2 days early – and on a fricking Sunday morning too!! Yes that is correct, I was out of my apartment by 11:45 am and 10 minutes later I got a confirmation SMS stating that the package was on it’s way to me and then I got a call saying that it has arrived at my apartment. That was quick. So thank you Amazon India.
I was out till 3pm and once I came back home, I opened the box and took out the laptop. So it’s the Dell Vostro 3558 Corei3 version. It comes in a 15.6 inch LED Backlit Display with Truelife and HD & 4GB DDR3L 1600Mhz and a 500GB SATA Hard Drive 5400RPM (not 1TB as I had erroneously stated in the previous post). It has 1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0 slots, a security slot and a Media Card (SD, SDHC, SDXC) slot. And this is my first computer with a chicklet style keyboard.
My old Lenovo is over 5 years old and is getting on. I am gonna give it to my dad’s office so he and his coworker can use it for their purposes. Today I have spent a long time copying files and data from my Lenovo’s 500 GB drive onto two external drives and it is odd to see my laptop’s drive almost empty. That is an odd feeling looking at two drives empty of all data.
Nothing lasts forever so out with the old and in with the new I guess. Especially when it comes to computers. Cheers! I still have to install Windows 7 in this so I haven’t even switched on the computer yet!
