I now have an Acer laptop with 3 gigs of ram, 160 gig hard drive, dvd burner, built in web cam, surround sound, and a bunch of other nifty stuff.
Its quite a bit heavier than my older computer, but oh well.
I gave my Gateway to Joe. He thought he was getting this one, but Jack gave it to me because I'm about to graduate from JALC, so this is my "yay for hard work" present. Hells yeah. I like it alot.
And Joe really doesn't have anything to bitch about. He still got a free computer out of the deal. It isn't like he's ever online anyway. The Acer is so much better for computer games. I haven't played the Sims 2 on it yet, but I'm going to here in the very near future...probably after I get done writing this as a matter of fact.
Adam was jealous. He wanted this computer and he wanted Jack to give Joe the other one (it had just about the same specs as the Gateway). Jack kept the other Acer for himself though. After I get it online and hooked up with anti-virus and anti-spyware and put his games on it, he's going to take it over the road with him.
This one has issues with the battery and the surround sound. Which is no biggie. They thought it didn't have sound at all. I switched the default from the surround sound to normal speaker, and now it works. The battery is screwed up though. If I don't have it plugged in, it randomly shuts off.
So yeah..that's it for now.
