Whee! I bought a laptop.
Intel Celeron M
1.50 GHz processor
1 GB RAM
WinXP Home SP2
It came with McAfee and something called Bigfix, as well as an unactivated copy of MSOffice. Basically, it came with all of the basic Windows XP stuff. I got rid of McAfee and the Bigfix thing… Not really needed.
I installed Pidgin, Flock, Firefox, IE7, OpenOffice, Comodo Antivirus and Malware, X-chat 2, and Gimp.
My plans for this computer system and my desktop are as follows–
- Keep Windows XP on the laptop. It runs fine, and I don’t have to mess with anything.
- Reinstall Ubuntu on the desktop.
- No dual-booting!
- Get an external USB hard drive or something so I can share my files easily between both computers (this is needed… I want to work on my fanfics on the laptop when I’m on the couch).
The only thing I really need now is a small mouse for the laptop and a laptop bag. My mom offered to make me a bag, but I’m not sure. If I can’t find anything for relatively cheap, then I’ll have her make me one.
I love this laptop. It’s lightweight, easy to use, pretty fast, and small.
