We hear everywhere ppl cutting budget and saving $ getting ready for the impact of the imcoming recession .. being said that ... yesday a freaking unfortunate event happened to me la! my 4 yrs old laptop die on me!!!
I m now using my super mini MSI Wind as backup but i know i still need to look for a more suitable laptop bcoz this super small MSI Wind is only good if i m travelling ... for day to day use ... it not so advisable one geh .. lack of perfromance and speed ma.
Personally i like Dell because they got superb sapot. I changed my keyboard twice for free and once its my hdd ... so sapot would be the only reason i will go back to Dell .. quality of the products? well that one really one grey area la ... it wont break in the 1st place if its really a great quality product rite? but then again .... its all made in china! what u expect? lol!
So i went to dell website just now shopping for a new laptop te replace my dead one ... i wanted a laptop with Win XP bcoz Vista sucks ... it crashes alot and you need freaking 4GB ram!!! 4 farking GBs!!!! WTF man?! Time is bad so gotta spend smart .... XP can run dem smooth with only 1GB .. so i m better off with 1GB rite? 1GB should be cheaper rite?
WRONG! I found out that the price indicated in the dell website is inclusive of window vista home edition ledi .... and after talking to someone from dell live chat sapot ... he recomend that i do a downgrade to XP since i wanted XP as os.
The word downgrade I LIKE AH! DOWNGRADE means cheaper!!! where u got heard ppl paying more to downgrade one rite? If you downgrade your MAS business class flight to economy class then u kena pay lesser mah rite anot?
WRONG again! Dell charge you more when u downgrade from Vista Home Edition to Win XP! No shit ... i no bruff you wan! ... u see for yourself the screenshot i took from their website. [LINK]
You see hor ... XP is RM327.00 extra .. then i trade in my Vista maybe can get RM200 guah? all in all i am paying RM527.00 TO DOWNGRADE?!!! OUMAIKOT!!!! Can justify anot?!!! You think they think we dunno how to count one or what ar?
I just bought a MSI Wind umpc a few month ago ... for RM1,799 i get a fairly good (in term of speed n performance), very mobile laptop that comes with Win XP ... i think i might as well stick to this la!! Recession kambing mah!!! I dunwan to pay RM527.00 to downgrade leh! How?
WAY TO GO DELL!!! GUA CAYA SAMA LU LA!
