Limp lap-top

Following a hissy fit last night during which I punched my laptop and very nearly threw it out of the window (I don't know - you just don't get these issues with a Mac......) Today I went to buy a new laptop. Mine - which I've only had a year - is so crammed with shite that it runs slower than a snail's pace. I used it extensively while I was displaced as my beloved I-Mac was in storage. 

In Curry's I was gutted to realise just how expensive they are - at least for a good one. 

So following the advice of a pal - I went to PC repair shop near my house and my little laptop is booked in tomorrow for a 24 hour period during which its hard drive will be wiped completely and Windows etc will all be re-installed. The result will be like a new laptop. (I can't wait). 

All for the princely sum of just £59.

I love a bargain :)

  1. LOL. £59!!! I'd have done it for you for nothing. :-)

    I'd even have throw in a windows upgrade and made sure your porn collection was in tact.

    I'd also have shown you how to do it yourself in future.

  3. Well I'll show you how to do it for next time.

    Don't think that a mac is free from slowdown when you install lots of crap on them either. They will react just the same. :-)
