The Only Way Is Up-Grade

Here’s a question for you. What is the worst thing that can happen to a gamer or anyone who owns something that switches on? The answer is the item can break down. Now why do I ask such a question I assume you ask? It is because my dearest Ready Uppers, something of mine did just that this week.

My lovely lappy with my cute desktop picture.

As I was watching some much needed catch up episodes on my laptop my charger decided to blow. This is the third time my charger has kicked the bucket within a year and believe me it is getting very tiring. My poor laptop is pushing 4 years now and the battery is totally knackered, so no charger meant I had no laptop. As I swore, stomped and flapped my arms in frustration knowing that finding a decent priced charger is just a pain in the butt, it was then that I decided to buy a new laptop. With my Argos catalogue at the ready and surfing the internet on my phone for the latest deals, I couldn’t help but feel a twinge of sadness.

My lovely Toshiba was my first laptop I brought in my second year of uni. During its time it has seen me through essays to dissertations, numerous MSN and Facebook conversations, and even my fair share of music downloads and online shopping. I know this may seem silly but I kept thinking of how gutted that my Toshiba will soon be relegated from being my lifeline to just being my back up.  

So many shiny laptops. I wonder which one i should choose

But as I sat in my room and thought about my upcoming purchase, I found comfort in knowing that upgrades are just a fact of life. My room alone is a testament to this fact. Looking at the various consoles and games knocking around in different nooks and crannies, it reminded me that getting something new to replace the old doesn’t mean I can’t go back and enjoy what used to. Now all that remains is THE most important decision to make when it comes to choosing a laptop…what colour should I choose?!

    I know your not feeling the Vaio Simes but I’m thinking of splashing out on one because its in pink! 😀 If I could get it in purple I think I would have a heart attack!

    And well spotted Kat…that is lovely Pucca on my desktop. I used to get all the Pucca stuff years ago…I need to buy it all again now.

    Got to align with Simes. Friend got a Vaio a couple of months ago and it’s truly crap! Cheap case, keyboard etc… just awful to use! Have a look at http://www.pinklaptops.org.uk/ if that’s you’re criteria! 🙂

    I can’t believe there’s a dedicated website for pink laptops…
