New laptop?

Posted December 23rd, 2011 at 9:48 AM by Twiggy

Yeah. I got a new laptop to replace the old and busted one. Hmm... Let's see pics here... It's a Toshiba Satellite... I had enough of Acer and shoddy builds.

Spoiler:

Everything included.


Front view of the laptop.

Quick Guide, Health and Safety Comfort and Safety Guide, and.. Norton brochure. Oh, and registration papers.


This barely fits the laptop.


Hey, it at least has a separate Num Pad! XD


Not shown: the fact that the screen is brighter than the sun. If DSi at brightness 1 is a 1, 3DS's 3 and desktop's 50% are 5, my old laptop's 100% is 4, my dad's Galaxy S II is a 10, then this is probably 11.


Of course, it wouldn't be perfect, no? There's always something that could have been not there - some junkware. The first thing I did after booting up was to remove Norton and WildTangent. Junk, I call them. Then I installed MSE.

It felt speedier than my desktop PC, let alone my old laptop. XD This is what happens when you give them a 3-year gap...

    Toshiba Satellites... dislike...

    Their laptop policies are kinda shady. Just be wary if anything ever goes wrong with it while it's under manufacturer warranty. Trust me.
