Recent Cravings

March 7th, 2011 by kamkuey

The problem with me is that I have these sudden cravings for certain expensive stuff. Previously it was mobile phones. More recently, slim and sleek notebooks as well as watches. I’ll leave watches out for now.

Now, notebooks. You see, when I decided to sell my iMac previously, I was in a dilemma, whether to get a powerful desktop or to  get a notebook. I decided to get the desktop instead. In hindsight, I guess there’s plus and negative points about the desktop. The plus points are that it’s more powerful, and a work horse in terms of long extended period of use at high CPU usage. Plus a large 24” monitor to boot. However, the huge casing and monitor has taken up a substantial amount of table real estate. But it’s ok, because it kind of a good gaming machine :)

On the other hand, a notebook will not have that awesome power which the desktop can provide. But a notebook would be neater due to it’s much smaller footprint. But the most important of all, I can bring the notebook around.

Anyways, it is ok. Because right now if I do need a notebook to bring around, I can opt for the smaller, sleeker ultra light notebooks which oozes style.

Like this Dell Vostro V130.

Nice piece of equipment. Sleek, slim, light. I guess it’s i3 ULV processor should be sufficient for standard websurfing, word processing as well as some spreadsheets. Not forgetting emailing, chatting and fbooking. So… anyways… just ranting :)


Nothing much to know about myself. In a nutshell, I manage a little call centre, but I was trained in IT. Now more like I am in the service industry cum IT support. Anyways, on the side, I like motoring, photography and sometimes fishing. Anything else you can ask me direct la.
