At Last! My New Laptop

December 5, 2009


After having a hard time choosing between Dell and Compaq, I already made up my mind and chose to buy a Dell laptop. I got my Dell Inspiron 1440 last Sunday November 30. I preferred a colour black laptop because it looks formal and corporate. Aside from a laptop, I also got some good freebies like the Smart Broadband, Optical Mouse and a Laptop Bag, not bad at all. What made me decide to choose Dell? I did research and read some reviews about it and I found out that Dell is way better than Compaq. I bought it in Accent Micro in Park Square Makati and they are the authorized service centre for Dell laptops. So far so good, I love my new Dell laptop and I’m satisfied. These are the specs:

Dell Inspiron 14 (Alba)

Intel Core Duo T4200
2GB Memory
320GB Hard Drive
14.1″ WXGA Display
8x DVDRW Drive
10/100 Ethernet LAN
Dell 802.11 b/g Wireless LAN
Vista Home Basic
6-Cell Battery

Compaq or Dell?

November 14, 2009

I’m planning to buy a laptop maybe this end of November or first week of December. This will be my birthday gift for myself. But I’m torn between this 2 laptop models, Compaq Presario CQ40-551TU and Dell Inspiron 14 (ALBA) T4200. Almost the same specs and price based on what I’ve researched. But until now I don’t know what to choose and I’m having hard time thinking and comparing. Can someone give an opinion about this and that would be a great help. Thanks
