My Handy Friend: Acer emachines D730z

Sometime in November 2010, I withdrew money from my savings to let my family go for a shopping in SM Mall here in Bacolod, and also to treat our returned missionary, Gilbor Junior who is fresh from his 2-year mission in Butuan Philippines Mission in Mindanao, and the 8th birthday of our grandson, Toto Bryan.

I was surprised when my wife told me: "Why should you not purchase a laptop of your own? It's not a good practice to always borrow from others every time you've a seminar or workshop." Though I've a desktop at home, but in seminar or work-related conference I've had as a school principal, I need a laptop. She had sense therefore!

However, I'm flabbergasted for I couldn't decide for just a snap of a finger for the laptop's price is too costly. Besides, I don't know what brand or quality of a laptop is best. Anyway, my excitement was getting intense for I've a ready cash on hand. Well, I canvassed all computer kiosks or outlets in SM mall.

Knowing my dilemma, our son suggested that I've to compare the features first of every computer as to their usability, durability, and availability of parts and service by reading its brochure. Then consider the prices later.

There are four reasons why I need to buy this:

3. It's a 2GB DDR3, Memory expandable up to 8GD DDR3.
