everything all out.. muahahahha.. dig dig dig.. got every piece of stuff in the box out.


SO..... beauty and guys...

This is my brand new laptop. she's dexter. i know dexter is a masculine name but we (Debbie & I) decided to name her Dexter cos Dexter is a smart computer name. n she needs to be extremely smart to be helping me with acing my courses and doing my homework.

Well, if you were wondering : Didn't she just buy a laptop weeks ago?

I did... and unfortunately i veli veli soi.. i couldnt go online with it.. so i had to return it. maybe cos i dunno how.. or maybe cos it was defected. well anywayssss...

This is 50 dollars more expensive, but it's waaaay waaaay waaaaay better. and the best part? it's still white. :P

The process of me purchasing this:

thought to myself 'daaaangg.. needa pass up my assignment by Tuesday and i need to do it.. and i want my own laptop do complete it...'

so i went online and started browsing all over.. saw the one i purchased last time and sobbbed over it like a boy cos i missed it so. but anyhoo... it popped up that they had it in stock online and i could purchase it!

so i did.. then out of no where i started looking at other models.. and found this one <3

so i cancelled my purchase online since they had this model in store.. called them.. 15 minutes to closing.. asked them to confirm that they had it.. wait... wait... waited.. waited... 10 minutes gone. she told me they had it. i wanted it. i needed it!

so i told them that i would be there in 3 minutes. ran downstairs in my pajamas.. with a jacket duh.. ran to westin hotel.. nearest to my house with looooads of cabs waiting in line.. *wait!* *smacks my head* i just realised that macdonald hotel is right next to my building..

anyways.. the taxi got me there.. it was 8.59pm.. the guy was pulling the grills.. i tried to act as if i wasnt desperate.. 'PLEASE LET ME GET IT!!! i neeeed to buy my laptop today!!!!' lols.. he was like, go and find the computer guy.

phew! passed that...

the computer guy helped me get my laptop.. and unfortunately i couldnt use my futureshop card to purchase cos it was used to purchase the one online and i cancelled it so it had to take froggin 5 business days to return my credit. so i had to use my mastercard, visa card, and my debit card.. swipe till all of them smoked.

spend 15 dollars on the taxi which i could of walked there on usual days. but anyways.. i got it.. and i'm extremely pleased with it. turned it home when i reached home.. and it detected our wireless connexion.. SWEET pie :)

so that's the story of my dexter.
