RE: Time to Buy a Second Laptop!

in LeoFinance8 months ago

Ha! I am in the same boat. My laptop harddrive went out a few months back (after about a year 🙄). I was so fed up that I decided to get the cheapest laptop I could find. So I did.

Paid $140 including tax :-) Afterall, I was just going to be using it for email/browsing.

Celeron 1.1 GHz
60 GB ... That's right 60 GB hard drive.

Was so proud of myself. That was a few months ago.

Already regretting that decision! Hahaha. Just get a decent one so you don't have regrets :-)

Oh yeah. Had Ubuntu on the old one. Windows on this one.

I will be going back to linux on the next one :-)

I have an i3 on this one, but too bad about the minimum RAM and HDD instead of SSD. I don't remember the parity between our national currency and USD at the time, to compare to how much you paid on yours, or what would I buy for the same money today.

Yep, you can't expect wonders from very cheap technology. At some point, limits will become obvious.

I didn't think I was such a computer snob until I got this little cheapo. Guess I am truly accustomed to the finer things :-)

When I was younger I used to buy (mostly build) some of the most powerful configurations. But that desire is not the same anymore. Now I just want things to work and work well when I need them. And this one simply can't handle it anymore. Not by itself anyway.
