You'll probably really need one for college. Then again, maybe not if you're more social than me - I take mine to the dining hall when I eat, and to the student center, and to classes so I don't have to pay attention, etc.

I'm probably getting one regardless, cause I really need to get one for my own. This family desktop sucks.

Speaking of college, I finally got my last college decision (Binghamton acceptance!) but there was this curveball thrown. I got accepted into the Spring 2014 semester. I have no idea what that entails. =I

So do you still plan on going to Fordham, or...?

I know the feels. I'm on a 9-year-old desktop right now and it's so hard to use now since newer computers are just all around better. I am getting a laptop soon though, so it's not going to be like this forever.

My desktop's actually relatively modern, but I just hate going on it.

I know the feeling. One of my choices was Rutgers but they barely offered me anything compared to ND, so the choice became obvious - 5k in loans a year, or 20k+?

Notre Dame? I know a couple of people that got in there. I heard that place is really religious, though. D=

I meant to apply to Rutgers, but got lazy since it wasn't a part of Common App. :I

For the record, who ever decided the release the financial aid packages after April 1st is an idiot.

My PC's like 5 years old, but its still running smoothly. Its surprisingly powerful for its age, with a good 8 gigs of ram and a relatively good south bridge Graphic Card. All I really care is that it has an HD port, so the need for a monitor isn't needed, as I can just plug my TV in. Oh, and I have no internet thanks to the move, god damn it boxes as far as the eyes can see, but I got a job and can afford internet cafe's daily, 1 hour=1 euro after a certain time, so I'm gonna be active yet again.

    If it sounds like that, it just might be dust. When my computer gets really dusty inside, anything can make it sound like that.

    Although my computer came with 2GB ram, it can support a max of 4. Which still kinda sucks.

    All the best for you essay, Dipu! Procrastinate no longer and get it done aite? :3 Oh, and hope you get a new laptop soon~

    My laptop's been in service for about 3-4 years, and it's breaking down already ;_; After a period of time, it puts up a notice that my virtual memory is too low. I've tried to fix it by every means possible, but it doesn't seem to be responding to treatment. Oh well, time for a new laptop!

      My laptop's fan is broken. I should really somehow get it fixed before I start taking classes again. The problem is I don't have warranty anymore (even though we paid for an extra year they said it wasn't applied and we never got that fixed. few months too late now). I have terrible luck with laptops as I've only had it a shy of a few months before 3 years. Well more like my laptops' fan which leads to bigger problem if you continue to try to use it when your fan is acting up/not working. Which is why I haven't touched my laptop is a month now. Kinda feel surreal now that I think about it.

        Well, if it makes you feel any better, I'm still running a desktop with a Pentium IV Procceser, it only has 512 Ram and a 32 Bit Graphics card. Even worse, it's a slim model, so getting upgradable parts for the thing is a nightmare (Both the Ram and the Graphics card are upgrades, originally only having 16 bit and 256 Ram).

          I know someone who just recently spent like $6500 Australian dollars on a new machine. I don't remember all the specs, but that thing is a freaking beast.

          ...And it made me so jealous. X(

          Then again, my own computer is still pretty decent, just got it last year or so because my old desktop just suddenly went poof (power supply issue, lol @ dell).

          At the moment I am on a 7 year old vista desktop with upgraded RAM & all that. I am currently saving up for a decent laptop, because living with my tablet isn't enough. I need an on-the-go computer. xD I'm too advanced for tablets lmao.

          Which laptop would y'all recommend? Dell? Apple? Toshiba? Acer? Lenovo? Which? I'm thinking of something lightweight and moderately powerful.

          Anyways, I gotta go~ My bed is calling to me. Goodnight, DCC!

          From personal experience, do not go with Dell. They're decent computers, but I've had so many problems with their power supplies going bad after a year or two that it's not funny. Three computers (two laptops and a desktop), all of them having power problems - the laptop I still have can't be ported around anywhere because it hasn't been able to hold a charge for years. And don't get me started on the customer service. :( Don't know how it is now but it was so bad back when I was trying to get things fixed.

          My husband had a Toshiba laptop that lasted for the longest while, though. Was still working when I last used it, which was maybe a year or two ago. And he got that thing just before I got my first laptop (about 2003 or 2004), so. Those seem to be decent. I can't say much about the other brands though, having never had one.
