I finally did it! I got myself a computer that actually fits my lifestyle…a computer that you can actually carry with you – not drag after you. As it is evident from the website, I love to travel and have spent many years living and travelling abroad. One concern has always been: to bring my laptop or not to bring it (because of the size)?
My old lab top – an Acer Aspire 1362 weighs 3.5 kilos (without the wires, mouse, computer bag etc.). This makes it drag-able at best. I bought it eight years ago for 1.100$. It has a 516 MB memory and a storage of 40 GB. Two things have always bothered me about it: 1. Fan noise, 2. Weight – which did not suit my lifestyle at all. But still I can’t complain because it is still running after 8 years, which I think is pretty good.
So I have now finally bought myself a computer that fits my lifestyle. A notebook: Acer Aspire 1410. There is no fan noise, it has a memory of 2GB and a storage of 250 GB HDD, it merely weighs 1.4 kg and it cost me 550$.
So times change – from laptop to notebook: it suits my lifestyle and I am very happy
