Got a new computer! Dell Inspiron 15r Special Edition!

My old HP (I can’t even remember the model number) finally couldn’t take the heat anymore here in Vietnam and it died.

I gave it a unisex name, “Taylor.”  The story goes that my coworker and I were talking about how you can get attached to things if you name them. I think I mentioned that I don’t think I could if I gave it a unisex name. I was right. Taylor and I didn’t quite care about each other. I’m not sad to see her/him go. I’m glad to have a new machine that isn’t shitting on me every 3 minutes. New machines name, “Rick.” Just made that up.

It has 1 TB of Hard Drive space that is partitioned out into a few sections.  Also it has the Switchable AMD Radeon HD 7670M GPU. Which is nice so I can play Skyrim on High Settings.

    Hey have you got a scratch in your trackpad, havent you? This dell model’s trackpad sucks and i got a scratch even without using it hard. You better use it with a USB mouse.. always!

      I’m already using an external mouse so I’ve really not used the trackpad much. But in looking at it now… I can totally see how it would not hold up over time. This is what makes some laptops so cheap and yet still have good hardware. They stuff it all in a glass (plastic) house.
