I've been wanting a new laptop for awhile. I got my Dell Inspiron E1505 almost 4 years ago. I'm outgrowing the hard drive and my games (Sims 3, etc) don't run as well as I wished they did. I've been looking at Dell's laptops lately and whenever I customize a laptop with the specs I want it's been coming out to $1,500 at least. So I've been waiting for a good sale before I got one, because I only wanted to pay between $500-800. When I got my E1505 4 years ago I paid, $1,200 and I really didn't want to pay that much again.

Friday I had an email from Dell. They were having a sale just for the Dell credit account holders. So I went to see what they had. I customized a laptop and even upgraded a few of the specs and the total still only came out to $789! Wow! When I purchased it, I even got free shipping. Also if you pay for your purchase within 6 months you won't have to pay interest on it.

I got a Dell Inspiron 1545


-Intel Core 2 Duo 2.20 GHz Processor
-256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD4330 video card
-500GB Hard Drive
-15.6 inch wide screen display
-Integrated 1.3M Pixel Webcam
-8X DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive
-Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium
-9-cell Primary Battery

I customized it online and upgraded some of the features. I was really wanting a 512MB video card, but all they were offering was the 256MB which isn't bad, that's what I have in my current laptop and with the faster processor speed and extra RAM my games and photo programs should run smoothly. I really like the Intel Core Duo processors. I also have that in this laptop right now. It's a high end processor and runs smoothly and lets you operate multiple programs without slowing down your machine. Dell has a comparison chart online for it's processors and I thought it was funny Core Duo 2 is rated: Genius. Haha!

F & I were talking about laptops when I was in the Philippines. I said he could have my old one if I got a new one. He calls my current laptop a powerhouse, lol. He likes a lot of old games, so he said he would like having my older laptop. So it will become his when he comes to the USA. I'm excited to get the new one, though right now it says the estimated ship date is March 29th! So long to wait! The only thing I won't like is transferring all my photos, music, etc to the new laptop when it arrives!

  1. How exciting! Congratulations on the new laptop! I'm dying for a MAC...maybe if I save up I can get it by the end of the year. Big maybe!

  2. Maybe someday, I'll get a MAC Patty, hehe. I haven't given in yet though, I'm still so used to Windows.

  3. Thanks in advance for the laptop. Your old one is still pretty high-powered and has lotsa space too. hehe.

  4. Be careful about sending laptop to the Philippines. My cousin got one sent from USA to Mania. It was a used laptop and she had to go through some corrupt custom officials. She went back home because they were asking her to pay a "fee" which she can't afford. She was jobless at that time. My mom told her to go back to customs and tell them that the laptop was donation. She was kinda embarrassed to say it there and she was asked how much money she had with her. Shesaid P1,000 only. LOL. So please send it thru a reputable carrier.

  5. Jackie I'm not sending it to the Philippines. It will be F.B.'s when he comes to the USA.

  6. Oops, sorry I missed the part when you wrote "when he comes to the USA." my bad! I reacted right away lol

  7. That's okay, lol. I know from experience with Philippine mail not to mail something like that- one time I mailed him my old ipod mini and it got there but then he had to pay a $100 tax on it! So I don't ship electronics. My laptop is to precious to ship over there too, haha, I know it wouldn't make it! He only has a desktop at home, so it will be good for him to have my old laptop as his when he's in the USA.

  8. I love getting a new computer. The set up sucks but it is nice to see what it can do when you load your favorite games on.

  9. Hah! Congrats! Enjoy your new toy!

  10. you will never learn


  11. oh ahahahah just saw patties comment
