Sumocat threw me a topic. Thanks a lot Sumocat! I was enjoying my non-writing day! You see, I gave myself off today, since yesterday, I spent hours, and hours writing a masterpiece called:
And now, on my day off you have the nerve to throw something back at me to write. Geez, I ready don’t want to, but I guess I have to…(Joking Of Course)
You want to know what gadgets I use on a daily basis? I think my answer may surprise you…
Let me first start off by telling you about my main computer. I’ve used this computer since August 2003. It’s none other then a HP Desktop! Yeah, that’s right, my main computer is a desktop. What’s wrong with that? If I can remember correctly, it’s 2.8 ghz P4 processor with HT. It has 512MB of ram, and a big hard drive. This baby does everything I need it to do. The only problem, it’s not mobile.
My wife owns a Acer 3680 Notebook, which we bought last March for $399. It’s a Celeron M 1.4 Ghz, with 512MB of ram, and Windows Vista Basic. Oh, that reminds me I have to write another article about how I configured Windows Basic to run a decent speed with 512MB of ram for a commentator. Thanks Sumocat! More work.
I also have a HP Laptop, though, I don’t know which model. It’s about 2 years old and it’s my mothers. She just upgraded to a new Dell, so I’m ‘borrowing’ the HP for now.
I don’t have a fancy camera, I think it’s a 1.3 MP. I’ve had it for years. I still think it takes amazing pictures.
I’m currently working on getting a Refurbished iPhone. I must admit, I really miss it. What I discovered is, I may be able to get a discount on the $399 phone and a discounted plan. Stay tuned…
You’re leaving something out Mike, aren’t you?
Leaving out? Aw, yes, my mistake, you want to know what goes in my gadget bag.
I don’t use a gadget bag. I used to, and will again some day, but for now, I don’t use one.
You’re still leaving something out! Uh, what about a tablet….pc…perhaps?
Yes, the tablet pc. I’m not leaving anything out. I don’t own a tablet pc.
Huh? But…but…how can that be? You’re a huge tablet supporter and you wrote a freak’n article called, How Many Trees Have you Save with a Tablet????
I know. I am a huge supporter and always will be. But at this time I don’t own one. It’s simple, really. Back in March I owned a Samsung Q1, and it died. It did not have a warranty , so I had to pay to get it fix. That wasn’t in my budget, so it was never fixed. I would like to buy a computer with a warranty, and as of now they are too expensive. Even the UMPCs are out of my range. The Samsung Q1U is $899. That’s a lot it you think about it. This is why I’m such a big supporter of cheaper gadgets.
There you have it. A look into my gadget world. I get by with what I have, and that’s just that.
