I was meant to buy a new laptop for quite a while now but I never really got to it. During the beginning of this month, the need for a new laptop grew even more but I held back because I knew that Windows 7 was coming out on the 22nd of October. All the laptop shops had Vista installed on their laptops but assured that you will get free upgrade to Windows 7 once it’s out. However if you purchase a new laptop, you will have to return it to the shop to get it upgraded to Windows 7 and this means that either you will have to pay sending back and delivery charges if you ordered online or will have to go back to the shop and probably have to wait a couple of days before getting your laptop back. I didn’t want the hassle so I waited.
I wanted to get a completely white laptop but couldn’t find any. Apple Mac was the only one I could get in white but when I thought about it, it wouldn’t be a good option for me. I’m used to windows and mac is quite different but my main reason for not going with Macintosh is that I already have Microsoft Office 2007 and finding an alternative office suite would just be stupid. So I spent hours trying to find the best white laptop I could get with windows. Sony was the best brand out there and I decided to go for the NW series (NW20EF/W). I’d have to say I’m quite pleased with the laptop. I haven’t yet tested the new features of Windows 7 but I really like the ability to compare (view) two opened windows side by side without the other one getting minimised.
