Laptop Plans for Black Friday

Posted by tehblogging trolless | 5:05 PM

Laptops can be a royal pain to deal with. Like this on I'm typing on right now is okay. It boots up (eventually), it lets my type away from the pc and desk which I sit in front of for hours. This is awesome when I'm feeling sick and want to lay down but have stuff to write. It also has a decent amount of space - 20+ gigs – much more than I (right now) would ever need on it as the bulk of my work sits on the pc.

But it's slow. Not as slow as older pcs I've had but it takes an age to load up. Browsing takes forever – there's at least a 5 min+ wait till IE boots up. Then suddenly it's right as rain to use. FF lags (partly due to that glitch) but also due to it eating up resources this laptop doesn't have rendering it unusable. I should install Chrome on here....

I'm thinking of waiting till Black Friday and hitting up the major techie/pc builder sites like Newegg to find parts (or stalk eBay: a buyer's dream, a seller's hassle) to try and get this thing more ram and maybe a working power supply. My pc is rather kitted out now, might as well spread the love to this baby.
