Although I know that you just don't get money anywhere, it is so stressful to have to wait and expect because my mom sets dates that she says she'll get me the laptop but she keeps on moving them on and on and on. Honestly, I think that she's just testing my sanity to see how long I would remain sane. In fact there are times that I feel so drained already and that evil thoughts come in to my mind like robbing a computer store or something! Grr!!!
But today my mom told me that instead of the Acer Aspire 4315, that I have always envisioned in my mind that I'll get it, she'll get me an Asus X51R series. Actually this laptop is more expensive than the Acer Aspire 4315 and it's better in some aspects. It also has it's downsides of course.
But before that here are the technical specifications:
:: Processor - Intel Celeron M 520 1.6 GHz 1MB L2 Cache, 533 MHz FSB
:: Mainboard - ATI RS400/RC400/RC410
:: Memory - 512 MB, DDR2 PC5300 SDRAM, max. 2048MB, 1x512MB
:: Graphics adapter - ATI XPress 1100 - 0 MB Chip/Clock rate: 329/333MHz
:: Display - 15.4 Zoll 16:10, 1280x800 pixel, WXGA Color-Shine Glare Type TFT Display, glossy: yes
:: Harddisk - 80GB 5400rpm Hitachi HTS 541680J9SA00
:: Soundcard - Realtek HD Audio
:: Connections - PCCard, Microphone, Headphones, 4x USB 2.0, VGA-Out, Kensington Lock, LAN, Modem
:: Networking - 802.11b/g Wireless Lan, 10/100 Ethernet, 56K Modem
:: Optical drive - DVD +/-R (DL) Matshita UJ-850S
:: Size - height x width x depth (in mm): 36x365x264
:: Weight - 2.74 kg
:: Battery - 4400 mAh lithium ions battery
:: Others: 4 in 1 Card Reader
So the good thing about the Asus X51r is that it's a dual core. The downside is that it only has a 512 MB memory as compared to the Acer Aspire 4315 which has a 1 GB memory and is already packaged with a Genuine Microsoft Windows XP.
But I can always upgrade it to a 1GB RAM right so it's quite ok.
