It has been quite a while.

My (mid-sem) exam finished this week. Umph! That was quite a nasty week! Sleepless nights and constant pouring over the books! Now I am a (sort of) free person. Our 12 holiday starts on 27th (Sept), till then our college is keeping us damn busy in labs. In my case, I am doing my bit to keep myself from resting for the little period our college allows.

A month back I bought my new laptop (HP Pavilion dv5200TX). This is a Intel Centrino Duo (1.73GHz) powered baby. This has 100GB SATA HDD (for non-geeks- SATAs are faster than the ‘ordinary‘ HDD) and 1GB of DDR2 RAM! Did I mention Nvidia Geforce Go 7400? This comes bundled with lots of softwares and very well customised Windows XP Home SP2. This lap even includes a remote control which we can use to control HP’s own media centre; oh, yes, you can use HP’s Media Centre without practically booting your system! Coming back to the graphics chipset I must say I am impressed. It runs NFS Most Wanted Black Edition, Tom Raider – Legend and Serious Sam 2 smoothly at almost all features turned on. The included software bundle of Nvidia has many awesome features like transparency for windows, zooming of the whole screen, creation of multiple desktops, etc. I almost forgot to mention that its has a 15.4″ widescreen running at 1280×800 resolutions and it is ‘Windows Vista ready‘.

…And yes you may find the content of this post hard to follow because I am writing it while listening to songs from my new iPod Shuffle (512MB) which I got for Rs.300 along with my laptop as a promotional offer…..and yes, this laptop cost me Rs.65000.
