Weeeeee.. got a new notebook!
My wife bought me a new Neo Vivid V1193. She got it SUPER cheap from her Smart retention plan.
Complete specs here.
I got the color white. I think its the least salable color. Been playing with it during the holidays. It came with a pre-installed Windows XP Home edition plus a 60 day trial of MS Office 2007. I’m still thinking if I’ll put windows 7 in this baby. hmmmmmm….
Another thing i noticed is that its not that fast compared to my laptop (of course!). Well maybe it will be after I upgrade the memory to 2GB.
I’m not used to small keys. But overall its really verrrrrry handy. Now I always leave my old 15 inch laptop at the office and just bring this one whenever i’m on the go. I wish It had a 3G slot so that I don’t have to plug my USB HSPDA dongles (Sun, Smart, and Globe).
Battery lasts for more than 2 hours. haven’t really checked exactly how long it lasts. Oh speaking of battery, the battery is kinda loose. I think it due to the loose lock on the right side. I had it checked at a neo service center and the tech guy said its normal (really?) as the other lock is tight. hmmm.. ok. if you say so.
Along with my new notebook, I bought the following:
- Screen Protector (from CDR King)
- Skin Protector (from CDR King)
- Sleeve (from CDR King)
- Notebook Stand (from CDR King)
- New Messenger bag – Copenhagen Big Messenger Bag – from Europak
