Well I finally bought a new laptop, it's not an Apple
but its not a bad little laptop. I got it at Walmart and it was only $368. Its a 16:9in
Acer. I had a friend help me pick it out. I didnt want to spend a lot since I didnt have that much to spend. It was my bday present to myself
I have sound!!!!! and a CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC key!!! lol
It has Windows 7 which made me laugh because could they have copied Apple anymore
I have been a die hard Apple fan for as long as I have ever
used computers...but I couldnt afford a new one and mine was too expensive to fix. For what I paid for this new laptop was what it costs to fix my
other laptops screen alone..lol
I feel like I am cheating!! My friend who helped me pick it out keeps calling me PC. All my friends are loving this right now because they all
know how much I love Apple....lol
The one thing I dont like is that the keyboard doesnt light up like on my Apple.. I will be having that switched out ASAP. A lit up keyboard is
awesome! All I have is some little light that is plugged into a USB port and it really doesnt help much. My fingers block the light over the keys. I
will have to look for something different.
My friend who helped me pick it out will be installing Photoshop CS4 (woohoo) and Creative Suite Design Premium.. I cant wait for those!!! He is
also going to install the camera and the best part is, he is gonna fix my Apple!!! I told him to take his time, no hurry. He is excellent with
computers, I swear everyone I know and work with has had their computers fixed or serviced by him..lol It will be beneficial to have an Apple and a PC
I think. I do need a PC for school purposes, some programs wont run on Apple and I am NOT installing Windows on my Mac.
So anyone who has Windows 7, what do you suggest? Any cool things I should know about or any bad things?
This does not mean I am a fully converted PC user, just temporary....lol
