Eulogy for a Laptop
August 8, 2012 § 2 Comments
Well, over the weekend my laptop died.. Normally this wouldn’t be such a big issue, except it was pretty much the main tool I had for writing code and stuff. So, hopefully, I’ll be able to get myself a new one soon. Perhaps one even BETTER than a compaq presario CW50 139WM. But that might be aiming a bit high.
I just wish computer shopping wasn’t so hard. I went to the store yesterday, but I’m sort of in the french-canadian part of new brunswick so all the laptops had canadian multilingual standard keyboards with extra keys and the layout of certain buttons like left shift and enter totally rustled my jimmies. I’ll probably have to either order online or wait until I get to america again to get a laptop with a normal keyboard.. sigh…
I can still work on the desktop but it isn’t as fun because I like to lie down when I write code and walk around and stuff and I totally can’t haul this monstrous rig all over my room.
Well, anybody have recommendations for what I should look at for my new lappy? I’m still thinking mid-range to budget, since I don’t really need the laptop to play much games with outside of the odd emulator or indie (that’s what the desktop is for)
