My old PC which I use for work has been acting up lately and I was planning, since last year to get a new laptop before the old one stops working. We’ve planned to get this last year but I just received it a few days ago. Well, I don’t like to call it “mine” completely yet because I got it for a 6-month installation plan using a friends credit card. I don’t have a credit card of my own just to avoid temptations but times like these, when I needed to buy something important, I ask for aid of a credit card. I originally plan for another MSI laptop since the old one showed a really great performance but the laptop I originally planned to get was out of stock so we’ve decided to get Toshiba instead.
WHAT’S IN THE PACKAGE-TOSHIBA SATELLITE C50-B (15.6") with its cords and manual.
-Toshiba laptop bag
-Rapoo N1162 wired USB mouse (which I loved from the very first use! It responds so fast.

MY THOUGHTS:I like that finally I have a new laptop, I’ve been planning to get one for the longest time but I can only completely call it “mine” when it’s fully paid. I am not used to its wide screen resolution of 15.6" inches since my previous laptop was just 11 inches but I like that I don’t have to move my eyes very near the screen anymore (I’m nearsighted btw), haha. I chose a laptop over a desktop computer because laptops can be brought everywhere. Many say that desktops are still the best but the only problem with it is if we travel, I can't take my work with me.

|I love this bag, it looks durable|
So far, the performance is amazing and I love it. I wish it will stay that way for years. I’m starting to get used to Windows 8 but I still have a lot to learn. As for my old notebook, I’m planning on reformatting this and delete most files or transfer it to the new lappy that way it will probably work fast again – I hope so. I’m planning on completely unloading all the files and unnecessary apps on the notebook to prevent it from completely stop working. I’m happy I got a new laptop, this will be my new companion especially as I learn more and more about blogging. I’d like to think of it as my late birthday gift – a treat for myself.
