12-22-11 - My New Tech Revealed
Well there you have it. My new laptop.
I went to Wal Mart yesterday as I said I would and went computer shopping.
unfortunately they did not have the computer I was looking for so I ended up getting the cheapest thing they had.
Its an Acer Aspire One Netbook built in with Windows 7 Starter Edition (say it with me. "Ewwwwwww... starter edition!")
For those who don't know, Starter Edition is the absolute worst version of Windows 7 in that its very limiting. Its actually just a demo of the actual Windows 7 os (you literally have to hack the damn thing to change the desktop background! *RAGE!!!*), and so I found out the hard way that I have to spend a ton more money just to purchase a fully function-able Windows 7 OS.... Microsoft, I am disappoint!
But aside from that, I'm actually loving my new toy. The keyboard is of a perfect (and comfortable) size for me to do my work on, and the Acer, despite how small it may look from a glance (its exactly the same size as my Bamboo Tablet) is actually just right!
Also the computer itself is surprisingly light, making it all the more portable :)
And the battery lasts a descent 4 hours.
I purchased a cheap wireless mouse with matching colors to go with it. (please take my word for it... cheap wireless mouse is cheap. And not really in a good way... :P )
I spent the whole day yesterday installing my usual software (in between playing with and caring for my new puppy.)
And now I'm looking forward to doing some actual work on it. :)
Once more though, I say stay tuned! I'll try to keep y'all updated on any kind of progress.
Half of the day today will be spent doing last minute Christmas shopping :P
Wish me luck!
