I still have to post some entires on he online shopping spree that we had for the last holiday season. We didn't but those expensive items but what we hve purchased are enough to cover our needs.
It was early November my my good old Compaq Presario lap top gave up on me. It wouldn't just boot properly and the screen would just turn into white. I know that something is wrong with its motherboard but I didn't opt to have it fixed anymore since it already has dead pixels as well. Hubby and I were talking about it over the phone when he said that he's gonna buy me a lap top next month. Meaning, by end of December. His balikbayan boxes will be shipped and will be received only on February 2009. So what the heck. I will have nothing to use for 3 darn months! So the day after we talked, I went to Cyberzon SM North Edsa to look for a reasonable priced lap top. I am really not that techy but at least I know what specs I really need and I still know some intermediate troubleshooting (thanks for being a Dell sales person for a year! LOL).After so much contemplation, I finally got myself a Compaq Presario CQ40.It came with a free HP carrying bag and a 2 GB flash drive and came with a licensed OS W Vista. Read its specifications here
When I arrived home, I immediately asked hubby to go online. He was surprised and asked me how did I get to managed to go online when I don't have any laptop to use (bro is using his own for work purposes). I told him I lready bought one coz I can't wait for his. To his dismay, he spilled the beans. Turns out, he bought me a MacBook. Bummer! BUT... hey! I am really not a MAC person. Yeah I know, Apple is a good brand and it looks sosyal to use. But for a practical reason, I like PC more than MAC. First one, I don't know how the OS of MAC works. If I am unlucky and I need to reformat the hard drive and install its OS, I am really a mac-challenged. two, if ever I experince problems with Mac, I don't want to go to a service service for a simple problem nd pay a hefty amount for it. Yeah I know that macs come with a one-year warranty. But what about the year after that?
Needless to say, I opted to hve my Presario than his MAC. He already got a notebook of his own and he doesn't need a spre one. He's just gonna sell it daw. Fine. Lesson learned: Ask first before buying anything. LOL
During the Black Friday Sale, hubby bought a (another affordable stuff) 10MP point and shoot camera. Less than $100 lang! hehehehe! It was a dismay that the DSLRs were not even sold at discounted price. I am eyeing pa amann for a Canon XSi. hayYyyY..di bale.. sa March na lang. He also bought his mom and blue ray player. Tamang-tama because they already have a Series 6 Samsung LCD TV. Sana lang ako din binilhan. LOL
