My new laptop!

Got my new laptop today (26th May 2015) that student loans say is worth over £500, I paid them £250 for it. Now I Google it and Currys sell it for £299! Its a HP15-r150sa. Still, it is fully loaded with software. Dragon Dictate, Test Help and Office 2013. My current Dell was £400 second hand :P

Intel i5, terabyte HD, 6 gig memory
  • Intel Core i5-4210U with Intel HD Graphics 4400 (1.7 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores)
  • 6 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM (1 x 2 GB, 1 x 4 GB)
  • 1 TB 5400 rpm SATA, SuperMulti DVD burner
  • Intel HD Graphics 4400, 39.6 cm (15.6") diagonal HD BrightView WLED-backlit (1366 x 768)
  • Microsoft Windows 10
Am very pleased with it, lovely laptop:

I still have the Dell D840 which has become my stereo pretty much but is still there for backup and possible gigs if I don't want to use or risk the HP.

My Stereo(s) (Hi-fi) The rise and fall and rise again. A History of my stereo endeavours.

Part 1 - from a radio to the Pioneer

Part 1 | Part 2 | My stereo in June 2015

This is no boast but I love my stereo. Having a good stereo is the centre of my life and my only essential possession for someone who is not really into possessions.

Early days

I started my stereo life with a radio my Grandad gave me. Then I got my Dad's old setup (record deck and Sinclair System 2000 compact amp) which I added another one of my Grandads radio's to.

My Dad's amp was like this only black:

The Pioneer compact hi-fi

When I got a proper job I was able to start saving for something better and I bought a Pioneer compact Hi-fi which after a time I really started to hate. The Pioneer quality was lacking from this unit and really a lot of it was for show, like the twin display spectrum analyser. I hated the way the cassette and cd decks clunked about. Many things frustrated me with it, like th…

Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard

Now I have a 24" monitor on my laptop I find that the £5 keyboard is really not up to it. Hence the Dell KB522 Wired Business Multimedia Keyboard. Very nice. I have started my degree in Creative and Professional Wiring this year and think I have a lot of typing ahead, hence the keyboard. It was only once I got this I realised how hard I had to hit the keys on the old one, as first of all with this one it hurt I was hitting them so hard. Pretty much sorted on the computer front now. I bought Dell hoping for longevity from this item. I don't like to buy new stuff all the time from an environmental standpoint.
