So i decided to go with another “well known for durability” brand, ASUS! yep! luckily they got a new series of Notebooks which are priced reasonably considering the quality of ASUS products. Not to mention there were HP and Acer laptops which were more cheaper but i didn’t fancy having anything other than ASUS since I was such an ASUS fanboy 😀
So I decided to buy the ASUS X51R series lappy which had a Core Duo 2.0Gz processor. And I was able to get a 7.5k discount from the Epsi guys (our local ASUS dealers) thanks to Suchetha 🙂
The first thing I did just after coming back from Epsi was repartitioning the 120GB HDD removing the evil Proprietary OS from my precious lappy. when partitioning i created one big (90gigs) partition for the /home and 1gb for swap. Rest was used to create three more partitions. One for my primary distro and the other two for installing testing versions and betas.
So now i’m back on my old track and the only prob i have is the lack of time. Not because SLIIT stuff are keeping me busy (actually theres nothing much to do these days, maybe its because this is the first semester), but because i have a ton and few more kilos of stuff to do. As most of you guys have noticed, my blogs have been deserted during the past few months. I’d love to get back to the old schedule where i posted 10+ new articles per week, but i really don’t think i’ll have that much of free time in the upcoming years 😦 so i’ll try to post at least once a week. well, it’s better than nothing right??? 😀
