This is Why My Dad (and Mom) Rocks


God knows how long I've been moaning and groaning about a new PC. Seriously, the lappy which I 'inherited' from my sister is better off thrown into the sea and be made into artificial reef.

Not that I'm not grateful, but standing at less than 512 RAM and less than 70Gb hard disk drive, its time has well passed. Besides, each time I brought it to any dealer or service center for repair or to reformat, they gave me a silly chuckle and refused to take it.

Yes, it is that old.

Since I'm not that kind of person who totes his lappy around, I guess its better for me to get a desktop PC which comes in much lower price but greater spec.

Thankfully God has mercy on this bad servant of His and my dad has some pity on me. But he had drawn the line - only under RM2000.

So I went around, cruising for new desktop PC. Cineleisure, Low Yat Plaza, Sungei Wang Plaza, Mid Valley Megamall - you name it. But in the end, I chose this Dell Inspiron 545s which was bought in Dell authorised dealer in Mid Valley Megamall.

Most importantly, the price fits my budget - RM2099 (if you go to its website or in Low Yat Plaza, it retails at RM2399). It has 4Gb RAM and 500Gb *gasp* hard disk drive, which is like 10 times upgrade from my lappy. It comes with Windows Vista Home Basic and Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 512 Mb NVIDIA graphic card.

In easy words, it's perfect for me. Period.

It's time to hit the Sims 3 game, although I'm like 4 months lagging behind. What the heck, now on I can hit any PC game without having to check on the requirements *evil laugh*.

To Abah, thanks for the stimulus package and to Mama, thanks for the persuasion on my behalf! Now, when will I get some fund for that Bang & Olufsen speakers? Heh kidding.
