I have had this thing since I was a freshman in high school and it was a hand me down when I got it. My Dad’s boss let him have it after they replaced them, so you know it was not even worth much back then. It was good enough to do homework on, although it has been a notebook that had to be plugged up since the battery gave out. I have a job though and so I am doing research on a new one. I even read a site called melhores marcas de notebook, which is in Spanish. I took two years of that in high school and when I was working in a hotel kitchen I learned plenty of it that they do not really teach you in a class room. At any rate I am trying my best to get the things that I want without paying too much. I have my mind on a notebook computer right now, but I may get swayed in the end.
Of course I do not think anyone can build a notebook themselves, but it is not so hard to build a desktop computer if you know what you are doing. I do not know that much about it, but there is a guy at work who does and he is nice enough to be willing to help me. There are some huge advantages to this, mainly in that you can buy quality components and get exactly what you want in a PC. I would only need his help with the initial assembly to be honest. I need him to put the CPU in the motherboard and to put the motherboard into the case. Once you get that far the rest of it is just a matter of snapping things into the right place.
