This is my first post from my new laptop that I’ll be taking to Thailand. I decided to get a new laptop since my old one has a black hole the size of penny on the screen which happened when I flew back from my last trip to South East Asia. This time I got a nicer laptop, something that will be able to process photos without lag. The old one was terrible, it was small and portable and did everything great except for post processing HDR photos, lol, which happens to be everything I do.
This new laptop is a 14 inch Asus with a i7 processor, 8 gigs of ram and a 750gig harddrive, all for 600 bucks online at Compusa. I jumped on that deal the moment I saw it, and I’m glad I did because the next day the price went up to 650.
So far this laptop has been blazing fast considering the mobile hard drive speed. I think I’m going to have a lot of fun post processing photos from Thailand. I also bought this beefy system so I could do more video tutorials while I’m there. Hopefully I’ll have the internet speed available for uploading large files.
