I got a massive headaches running around town, forget to drink coffee and got caught in the rain because I so wanna capture that ‘fluffy white’ bubbling water.
I wish my atm would just give me the present, wrapped with a red ribbon, plonk it on my lap and I have a laptop. Finito. But no…….he is a finanace man, remember? So, he dragged me from shop to shop, website to website to pick MY present.
After days of searching and enquiring, we finally shortlisted two models. But yay, budget went from around RM3K to RM4K now.
Before I forget, I do wish to own that Toshiba Qosimo which Toshiba call ‘AV Notebook PC’. But no lar, siao meh, it costs RM8K. I am buying a laptop, not a TV la. The colour is so, so, so, so nice.
So, experts sekalian, now between these two, what would be your choice? I prefer Dell.
Dell 630M – RM4.2K (with 3 yrs complete cover warrranty but con is this has no card reader.)
1.73 GHz, 2MB Cache, 533 MHz FSB
14.1″ Wide Screen XGA TFT Display with TrueLife(TM)
512MB (2 X 256MB) 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM
60GB Ultra ATA Hard Drive
Toshiba M40 -P540 – RM4.5K (only one year limited warranty)
M40-P540: Intel Centrino Mobile Technology with Intel Pentium M processor 730 (1.6GHz, 533MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache, 802.11b/g), WinXP Home Edition SP2, 256MB, 60GB HDD, 15.4 WXGA TFT with Clear SuperView Technology, DVD SuperMulti Double Layer Drive (DVDÂ±RW/RAM), IntelÂ® Graphics Media Accelerator 900 upto 128MB shared VRAM, Toshiba Express Media Player (instant-on CD/DVD), harman/kardon speakers, 5-in-1 card reader, IEEE 1394, 3x USB, 1-yr ILW (carry-in, part & labor)
My atm has a Dell and once, my kid broke his screen. Dell replaced it without question. That’s my reason in prefering Dell. Whilst, my atm prefer a Toshiba for its beautiful, beautiful clear view (or whatcha the screen resolution la).
Quick! Please give me some feedbacks so I can get this headache out of my head.
P/S : I had checked the net and apparently, the Toshiba model is hot and noisy and sluggish. And not much is written about Dell 630M. They cover more on Dell 6000. I don’t play too many graphic intensive games so it won’t be a big problem.
