A while back I wrote a post about my laptop and I was curious as to how long she was going to last, well the current one I have has continued to work longer than I expected.
This is a very good thing as I am still saving up for a newer one in the event she runs out of steam. Of course, I am not anathema to the idea of getting on before then assuming the price is right.
The specs that I am currently working with are rather modest as you can see here. Yet, they have been pretty workable given that I don’t usually do very intensive things with my laptop. Browsing the web, watching movies, etc. I’m not really a gamer so that’s not a concern of mine although I do know I can play Sim City 4 Deluxe on here with no problem at all.
Of course, that makes sense given that that game came out in 2004 and this machine is from…wait for it!……2006.
Here are some things I would like in a newer laptop here are a few of them:
1. RAM (at least 8 GB) currently I have DDR2. I want DDR3 since it’s cheaper.
2. A better graphics card Intel 945
3.Faster processor: This one might be equivalent to like an i3
4. better battery life: I don’t think I can get two hours on this one
5. Lighter weight: This thing is almost 5 lbs!
Now not all is bad of course. I am cool with the size of my current screen, I like the ability to convert to a tablet, and the touch screen with the stylus is awesome.
Oh well, we”ll see what I end up with.
