My Favorite Resource


My laptop is nearly 10 years old. Its battery is insanely short. Have changed its power plug thrice, the keypad twice, changed software and done numerous services too. But none of these could make me change my laptop.


Ever since I have got this one, I haven’t used another one with ease. The numerous presentations, editing for dramas, designing for posters and brochures for work, my writings everything for all these years was done using this. My brother calls this an old junk. But for me it’s my greatest resource. My gateway to learn new ideas and apps. So even when it’s old and needs repair now and then, I am in love with it from day one.

  3. I can relate completely Sheethal, there are things you really do not want to change. I have this block in my mind everytime I need to change my laptop, especially because every new version comes up with a different input these style these days.

  4. I think it's the convenience that makes us stick to a few things. My mobile is like that for me.

  5. It is surely hard to do away with stuff which has been useful for us for a long time. But yes 10 years is a long time for a laptop to sustain :D

  6. I hear you about how important the laptop is! I'm amazed though yours has lasted 10 years. None of my windows laptops lasted more than 3

  9. I'm amazed yours is still working fine for 10 years. I'd agree with Sanch. Mine never lasted for more than 4 years!

  14. Gee.. And I throw them away as soon as I can. I am not a gadget freak but yeah, kind of :P Oh, there are some things which I can't replace though - like a good book, a journal and stuff.
