It has been about two weeks now since hubby started fixing our laptop. It was working fine before he took it on the bed when suddenly the Internet stopped working and it didn’t reconnect for some reasons. That’s what he got for being envious of me blogging while lying in bed. That day was supposed to be a complete day of rest for both of us but we ended up having each one’s laptop in the bedroom. Try to imagine a lying position with a laptop and describe the rest.
I must admit I am living with a compulsive computer nerd among the nerds on earth. Annoyed by the laptop’s obscure defect, he got up and as compulsive as he is, he ordered online a HD to replace the one in the machine. That machine has the built-in Vista Business when we bought it then he decided to install XP instead. He said he didn’t like Vista as much as XP though. Huh! Think about when Windows Vista was to be realeased, I remember he even did a countdown as to when so he could purchase it the moment it would be out. He did purchase as expected and again, as compulsive as he is, he bought the one with the 64-bit system. He installed it on my PC and guess what – not all programs were compatible with that version that time. Although he managed to fixed it to run on 32-bit browser, he didn’t like the way it should be. So after running it for a couple of months, he shifted back to Win XP while the other was packed back.
Back to the laptop, he installed XP on it and thought it would work the way he wanted. It took so much time to install it because of the Service Pack updates but once he’d done, he noticed that the built-in bluetooth and fingerprint recognition didn’t work. He wanted so much the bluetooth functionality for the mouse to keep the usb-port. His dissatisfaction led him to reinstall Vista. The network system caused some problems so he reformatted the disk and reinstall Vista again. Finally, everything seems working fine now. Though some programs need to be installed. He mentioned about the upcoming Windows 7 and I know exactly what he’s up to next.
I am worst to understand technical terms and its description but yes, I found the laptop excellent.
I am dreaming to have one in future too.
Wish me goodluck.

Goodluck, Hobo! I’m sure you will get one soon. Laptops are getting cheaper now.

I’ve never face any problem working on VISTA , in fact from last one and half year i had never seen any crash while working on it. Heck – a better idea to move on to Vista.
Yes, yes! I’m glad that hubby is beginning to like it now, thanks to the crash we had for the past days. Guess what, he’s been surfing the net with that laptop now, compared before where he just sit and work on his PC. 🙂
Like HOBO, I also dream of having a laptop in the future too, hehe…
I’m having some problems with my PC too. It will turn 1 year on June, I’ve changed 2 RAMs already and just last week I reinstalled XP. Hay naku, kapag ganitong makulit itong pc ko, lalo akong tinatamad mag computer hehe.

Nakapagtataka naman yan, friend. Bagong-bago ang computer mo pero nagloloko na kaagad. You should have an extra machine like a laptop para tuloy-tuloy ang pag-oonline mo, hehee! Kapag manalo ako sa lotto ay bibilhan kita, hahaa! Pahingi’ng number.
Vista is much better in looks then XP but XP is having simplicity in using it.

Ruchi, thanks for dropping by. Absolutely true. Vista is a bit complicated when you’re used to XP.

I’ve gone back and forth between Vista and Xp, but… right now I am using XP, I feel like the computer runs faster on windows xp, so thats why I use it. Otherwise… I would use Vista.
Hi Joey fan, that was what hubby had observed with Vista in the beginning. He will never be a fan of it. I wonder how it will be with the new one. XP is still the choice of many.
Ganda naman ng laptop mo. Hehe. I want to buy the pink Sony Vaio laptop but it’s expensive e. Buti naman ok na OS mo. Vista rin ang gamit ko sa desktop ko. Buti naman at hindi pa nagcra-crash! Haha. Up to now, mas marami parin ang may gusto ng XP. But come to think of it, buggy din naman ang XP noon di ba? Umaayos lang nung nagkaron na ng Service pack. Hehehe. Love ko parin ang VIsta ko. Ang cute kasi ng special effects. LOL.
Have a blessed day ahead!

Honney, hahaa! Nagkataon kasi na nasa panahon tayo ng technology. At kung pwede lang nating bilhin lahat ng gusto natin, ano. Naku, pababa nang pababa nga ang prices ng laptop ngayon kaya mabibili mo rin balang araw yun.
Oo nga, yan din ang isa sa gusto ko sa Vista. Ang desktop interface at ang effect. Kumustang bakasyon?
