New Lappy

Last Saturday my old HP tablet lappy refused to switch on.  When I tried to switch it on, it switched off immediately.  Attempted a few times, it was the same scenario.  Hence I quickly consulted my engineers and most of them adviced me to go to the IT Show to get a new lappy.  They suspected my old lappy's motherboard has spoilt.  As fashionably yours was not sure if my old lappy's warranty has expired so I decided to go to IT show at Suntec to get a new lappy.  Of course I did my homework before heading to IT Show to grab my desired lappy.  As some of my colleagues who had gone to the IT Show on last Thursday, the 1st day of the IT Show, they brought back some brochures which I did take a look at them.  

Fashionably yours reached the IT Show last Saturday at about 3pm and it was super crowded.  Since I knew which model I want to buy, I just headed straight to the booth, grabbed and go.  It was a good steal as they gave me some freebies such as lappy's bag, lappy's sleeves, mouse, headphone, notebook cooler pad and keypad film protector which I am using now.  This keypad film protector is a transparent rubber which covers over my keypad.  Fashionably yours feels like my keypad is wearing a condom now and both my hands are touching all over it turning it ON.  *LOL*    Well I love my new lappy which has faster speed and running on Win 7.  It is a HP G32-301TX, a new model.  Added 8g ram for me as a complimentary since I extended 2yrs warranty for this new lappy.  Very thankful to my engineers for their advise.

My old lappy really know when to spoilt because upon checking the warranty, it is expiring in June 2011.  Henceforth last Monday which was my off day, I sent it to HP service centre to service it.  Actually my warranty covers pick up and delivery for faulty lappy.  However as fashionably yours was going to IKEA, it was on the way, so I just dropped by HP service centre.  Thank God when fashionably yours reached HP servcie centre, it was not so crowded.  Within 8mins, I was done and out of the building.  HP confirmed my motherboard is spoilt.  If it is not under warranty, would have cost me SGD800 to replace the motherboard.  HP replaced my motherboard and changed the LCD screen for me.  They delivered my old tablet lappy to my house on Wednesday evening.  I am very satisfy with their efficient services.

Fashionably yours met my niece and her husband at the IT Show last Saturday.  My niece's lappy also spoilt so she was looking for a new lappy, while the hubby was looking for a Maxtor hard disk.   One thing I find it weird at the IT Show is the place is already super crowded, there are some people who pushed pram to cram with the people at the IT Show.   I heard the announcement saying some of the floors due to overwhelming response, it is super crowded and hence no entry till the crowds are cleared inside.  I am smart to go to the IT Show early, otherwise it will be over crowded if went down in the late afternoon.

Now I have two lappy.  Mostly will use that old tablet lappy as an entertainment lappy since it has good sound effects for watching DVD.  For now, I am loving my new lappy for its fast speed.  This is my first entry from my new HP lappy.  Typing out this blog while sipping my hot cup of peppermint tea.

Were you at the IT Show last week and what did you buy ?  Feel free to share with me.
