My Top 5 Treat List

I (yolk) work as a secondary school teacher in Kuching. I have been earning a tiny amount of salary every month (really!).

Out of my salary, 60% goes to housing loan, 10% goes to transportation and 10% goes to family fund. Left 20% for daily expenses and savings

I ride a little blue motorcycle (Suzuki) which were bought 3rd handed during my years in University (5 years ago)
I have been using an old desktop computer which was bought in 2003! It keep hangs and restart by itself. I had to format it 2-3 times in a year. Further more, when I use Adobe Flash CS4 to draw, it will suddenly shut down even before I save my drawings.

Therefore, I have no choice but to use back the old version of “Macromedia Flash MX 2002” to draw -_-".

Despite of my condition, I do treat myself something nice once in awhile. Erm..let me think.

I brought Egg and her parents to Genting Highland for holidays....few years ago,

I bought a double storey terrace house for me and my future family!
still under constructions

On 2nd thought, I never really treat myself anything! -_-"

Anyway, here's My Top 5 Treat List which I really wish for!

1. Dell Inspiron 13 Laptop

2. A brand new car to replace my little motorcycle. I’m not greedy, Proton Saga SE is enough.

3. Get my whole house air-conditioned (especially bedrooms and living room)

4. Go to Disneyland Park (Anaheim), California with egg. (It is me and egg’s dream vacation)

5. A Fender American Standard Jazz Bass guitar

Anyway, treating myself with a Dell Inspiron 13 is my top priority now. If I have the money, I would definitely get one for myself. As I mentioned earlier, my current computer is 6 years old! (The average life span of a desktop computer is about 3-5 years) There are just too many problems with this computer such as frequent hangs, too many errors with software, too slow, too space consuming, etc. I need a computer which has the performance, the size, the connectivity and the price!

I need a computer which allows multitasking such as running Adobe Flash CS4, Adobe Fireworks CS4 and Sony Sound forge 10 at the same time so that I can create better arts (cartoon, caricature and animations). I need a powerful graphic card and a wide vivid display to create the perfect animations.

My current computer is taking up too much space in my room. I need a spacious place to do my work so that I will have inspirations to produce creative arts.

I need to surf the internet for ideas and resources frequently. Therefore, wifi is very essential. At the same time, I need to do a lot of transfers from other input devices (camera and hand phone) and a big hard disc space to store all my files.

Last but not least, I need a value plus computer as I earn just enough for my monthly expenditure.

Surprisingly, Dell Inspiron 13 meets all my needs!

Performance + Wide vivid display
It is built with an Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo processor which supports multitasking. It also has an improved graphics performance with ATI Mobility RadeonTM HD 4330.

It's only 13.3 inches which makes it very portable and saves space!

It has built-in connectivity with a media card reader, HDMI and eSATA, Enhanced wireless supports up to 802.11n connections and Dell™ Webcam Central

for your information, Egg is now in KL for her job trainings :)

From RM2,299 (definitely a thumbs up for a notebook with intel core duo processor). It is well balance between performance and price.

Why wait? Treat yourself a Dell Inspiron 13 now!

By the way, you are given a special coupon code 7ZQVQF2RLZRKW3 from Dell that would allow anyone who makes purchase of a Dell Inspiron 13 (S510701MY) with RM100 Instant Cash Redemption!!. This promotion is only available online or by calling Dell at 1800-88-0301. This coupon code expires on 10th Nov 2009.

  9. enjoy your post very much :)
    if you looking for high performance computer,
    for multitasking and such, i say go with desktop.. because you can change it processor, ram, graphic card and such.. but since you want portable maybe it not suitable..

    for designing, you should look notebook with high processor and of course built-in graphic card.

    if you have more and more money, i think you will with your talent.. go get macbook :D

  10. AL ~ you should join the contest too! the closing date is on 10th NOV! Next time if I get to go KL, maybe we can meet up ^_^
