when daughter left for her enrollment few days ago, i let her bring this netbook. i so love using this netbook i can easily carry it in our bedroom and do some browsing while in front f the tv. most of my photos were stored there, as it has bluetooth while the desktop had none. all my music’s there. the only thing i hate about it is it’s 10.1 monitor, but well, it wouldn’t be a netbook if it’s bigger than that, would it? missing it already:(((
now, i’m using this toshiba lappy, owned by the college daughter, it has a 15.4 monitor and displays better than the netbook. hubby decided to let daughter bring the netbook with her because it is more lightweight than this lappy, and it could be easier to fit in her school bag.
AND, AND, THE REAL STORY WAS, THIS LAPPY HAD SURVIVED 2 MUGGING ATTACKS! YES!
- first time was last year in broad daylight, daughter was walking on her way home from school, she was bumped on her left side by a man. she was quick to sensed that the man was eyeing her laptop. she run quickly towards the middle of a busy intersection where a traffic policeman stood. lappy survived!
- second time was just this september. WORSE. AND A SCARY ATTEMPT TO SNATCH THE LAPPY! again, she was clutching the lappy “tightly” (according to her), when suddenly, somebody grabbed it from her and the poor lappy FELL ON THE PAVEMENT. the man who grabbed it was riding in a motorcycle, there were two riders. seeing the lappy fell on the floor, the riders sped off. still in a state of shock, daughter took a taxi and went to school pale faced! LUCKILY, the lappy suffered only a small dent on the right corner.
THAT WAS THE STORY WHY I GOT THIS LAPPY IN EXCHANGE FOR THE NETBOOK.
TAKE CARE ESP. OUR STUDES WHO BROUGHT GADGETS (CELLPHONES) TO SCHOOL. OURS IS A HAVEN OF ALL SORTS OF CRIMES. COMPLACENCY IS A THING OF THE PAST.
