Sayonara to iCute, Irashaimasu to HP

After saying bye bye to my Internet, now it's time to say bye bye to my iCute (my PC of 7 years). I am not sure what happened to it coz it was fine the last I used it. Only this Friday my bro complained to me and I went to check on it, and it's dead *sob sob* but then it's the chance of a lifetime to ask Gerald to sponsor for a new PC *evil grin*.
So, there I went with "Oh, PC ko liao, can't help it. If motherboard rosak, sure no hope (coz mine is P3 500, dinosaur era). I will go to Low Yat to search for a new PC tomorrow."
Hence, my Sat plan of scrapping turned to PC hunt. Got a few quotation but this HP really stands out coz almost the same price as the DIY, just a hundred bucks diff but then, I got Vista and warranty by HP. This is also because it is an old model, they just upgrade the parts and sell off. I dun mind as long as it is wat I wanted and we bought it yesterday and also upgrade the graphic card & RAM.
Here's what my new PC spec is like:
  • Centrino Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz
  • 2GB RAM
  • 250GB Hard disk
  • DVD RW lightscribe
  • DVD RW (additional)
  • Nvidia GEForce 8500 256 RAM (additional)

All the above is for RM 2002 and the most important part of this is, Gerald is sponsoring RM 500 while the rest will be share between me and Ah Wai (my lil bro). This PC should last for another 5-7 years.

Now all I need is my Internet connection to feel the difference of old and new pc.
