Two Brand New Laptops in Two Days

Last few days of January was really a mess regarding with my online job. My desktop computer was a pain in the ass by the time I was re-sizing a photo in Adobe Photoshop with high resolution. The moment I was going to save it, I couldn't because of the low memory of my desktop. My net book was being used by my partner for another project so I couldn't disturb him.

My desktop computer is already five years old and I'm proud to say that I've been earning from it. So I guess it's time to move on. I had no choice but to buy a laptop. Although I need to upgrade some parts of my system unit or buy another one, it's bulky in my mini office. I could not imagine having two desktop computers. Well, having a laptop is really a part of my wish list. Yes, this is a good investment.

1st Day - I got a HP laptop

The next day, it was Jan. 30, 2013, my partner and I went to SM City Cebu and searched for laptops. Just to make the story short, I purchased HP Pavilion G4. Beside HP was Lenovo and I was eyeing for it. I thought HP was a value for money because I paid for 29K with a backpack, free printer and genuine OS. At the store, it looks okay, we couldn't see any problem but when I used it at home I just found the problem.

Low battery - when a charger was connected, it couldn't charge automatically. When I released the battery from the laptop while the power cord was the power source, still the laptop was like dead. The laptop needed to stand by for few minutes before it turned to be okay. Whew, it was such a hassle and I was very disappointed with HP. I thought it was a good value for money.

2nd day and onwards - Lenovo for me

January 31, 2013, my partner and I went back to the store. It took us long hours because the technician told me that there was no problem with the laptop. He never suggested to change the laptop with the same unit. I asked if I could replace it then the cashier said that I could since for her it was a factory defect. The technician never declared it as factory defect and it was really weird. But then, I opted to change it with another brand which is Lenovo because I lost my trust with HP. I added some amount because Lenovo is more expensive than HP. I only got a sling bag for this purchase.

I still need to reformat my desktop computer though and yes, I am happy with Lenovo. I could say that Lenovo is really for me. :D
