My new Laptop

Finally two week back I decided to buy a Laptop with 2.5GHz Core 2 Duo with 4GB RAM with Blue Ray disk and 256Mb graphics memory. Surprisingly there was no change in the configuration which I ordered and what I have received. I have changed my mind about buying a laptop from past one year. My father was really bored and frustrated the way I use to give him assignment of finding the cheapest laptop with my configuration. Before buying my Laptop 4 people bought laptop with my help and all of them were happy. So I thought my technological skills are good enough to order a Laptop for me.

So my Laptop arrived in Hubli with the help of my cousin Kaisar Ahmed Khatib who also had written formulae for me in my Ist year PUC. Thankfully he brought the laptop with utmost care.

When I opened my Laptop I saw it only has 3GB RAM. I was sad, because getting a 4GB laptop was my dream from the time when I had visited Microsoft Tech Vista 2007. The person there had 8Gb of RAM. I informed my father and he immediately called the shop. The shop owner informed that check it in Bios. Later I figured it out that was because I was using 32 bit windows Vista (genuine first time). After finding out from the forum I could figure out the best way to use maximum RAM on 32 bit machine is to install Vista SP1. Though you will not able to use the entire 4GB RAM but it really improves performance and you can use 3.2 odd GB of your RAM.

Infosys bulletin board was great help to get the Vista SP1. I have to install it on my machine and my friends machine to whom I had asked the same.

Thanks to my father for his effort and time to get the Laptop and Kaisar Khatib to get it to Hubli from Sharjah undamaged.
