asus_k50ijHi there guys! So this is one of my first posts after my laptop leaved me and broke down around 15 days ago! For those of you guys who didn’t follow the whole story, you have to know that two weeks ago my 2 years old HP DV6000 laptop stopped working, refusing to turn on and give me any sign of life.  I had no choice but take it to the repair center which kept it for 13 days.

After 13 days, they called me to tell that the laptop motherboard was broken beyond recovery and that if I wanted to fix it I had to spend 400 usd! There is no need to add that a couple of days later I ordered a new laptop. So, I chose a nice Asus K50IJ. Here are its specs:

  • Processor: 2GHz Intel Pentium Dual Core T4200.
  • RAM: 3GB, 800MHz DDR2.
  • Hard Disk: 320GB 5,400rpm.
  • Screen:15,6″ HD quality screen (1366X768).
  • Video Board: Intel GMA 4500MHD (integrated).
  • Wi-fi: Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi.
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

I am quite angry at HP. From a lot of forums I have learned that this American company bought cheap, faulty motherboards from a Chinese company causing thousands of thousands of laptops to break down in a span of time of 3 years….including mine!

The new Asus I have got is quite solid looking. No creaking and no cheap looking plastic. Everything seems compact, essential, robust. I like it! I even like the keyboard with its big, comfortable keys.

I looked for a decent YouTube video to show you guys my laptop, but the only one I got is in a East-Europe language. However, it shows you quite in detail its finishing and its look. Enjoy!

    i am pleased you got your ‘puter problems worked out!!! it’s good to be seeing your newsletters again—so much good info,hard work,great coverage on so many issues—please don’t forget all of us who still plod along with xp…it will probably be awhile before we “update” to win7 (not even considering vista)…maybe you could think about dusting off some old archives about xp whenever you find some new win7 info? 🙂 just a thought. please keep up the GOOD WORK!!!
