My new laptop!

New laptop
My new laptop came from PC World! Just don't use PC World's website, just don't. It's horrible. It's like a MicroSoft website, really. Anyway, back to the laptop.

It's actually quite good for the price, which was £360. It's an Acer 1.6 Ghz Intel Dual-Core T2060, 1014 MB DDR2 RAM. It has ~251 MB intergrated Intel GMA 950 chipset. It has a 1280 x 800 monitor.

It's quite cool. I managed to get my internet connection working on it, which is something special because I rarely get anything internet-related working. The only bad thing is that my router is quite poor so I have to be quite close to get a decent connection speed. I definitely wouldn't want to do much gaming on it because I'd probably get a lot of lag.

Also, I just noticed I almost got 1000 hits! ^_^

I'm still struggling to get used to laptop keyboards and mice. I'm also struggling to get used to Vista. I've noticed some decent UI features, like the progressive search in the explorer windows. I think I prefered the Start menu the way it was before, though.

The thing that strikes me the most about it is some of the very, very ridiculous features. There's the fact that about half of my 1GB memory is consumed on standing. Also, the fact that when I got it there were around 50 processes running. Also, when I downloaded the MSN Live Messenger installer and tried to run it, Windows refused and told me it was an invalid Windows program! Of course, turning off the ridiculous UAC fixed many problems.

Vista has its good points also. It certainly made Networking very easy for me.

I'm working on it. It won't take a huge amount of time but school is getting intense as we work up to end-of-year exams, and I'll be mainly playing with my new toy :D. The hardest part is reading JoshDreamland's code! He says it was "written for him". I think it's an excuse <_<

Anywho, expect a faster, more concise GM7zip soon. Hopefully I'll be able to add some cool features if I can think of any.

Goodbye for now, y'all.

Quite the contrary! I've been a laptop for at least a year now, and I never found any difficulty with it at all.
