Not at all like myself *laughing
I have got myself a new playmate – a new notebook, Acer Aspire E3-112-C2XJ 11,6′” – a very sleek silver matte metallic thing.
My old net-book, also an Acer Aspire, has been an absolutely star, but the last 3 weeks has it been playing up. The screen started to go milky white a couple of times at first – but gone worst and now it happens every time I turn it on. Had the IT boys to have a look at it and of course when I brought over to their shop of course it worked fine.
I don’t dare to bring it with me to Hong Kong and Japan, if it decides to not work at all. So this was me in the middle of the night taking an executive decision, a new notebook investment had to happen.
So I was looking up reviews and there it was. I fell in love with it straight away. And the price was just fantastic – it’s really a notebook made for students, so it really makes me feel young now when typing away. It’s 1,5″ bigger than my net-book.
Working just now for the first time with Windows 8 and I had heard so much about it and only negatives. So I was a bit worried, but I really like it, but not so great as XP and Windows 7.
Can manage apps and the desktop, no problems what so ever …have removed programs I didn’t want and added my favorites. So easy.
This little machine doesn’t make one sound … no fan – and not removable battery. Screen is so clear and the speakers is brilliant and underneath. The keyboard is amazing to use … and no crumbs are able to get in between here. And I love that all the ports are in the back. This little gem is JUST gorgeous.
Here is some technical facts; from acer.com
Cool and whisper-quiet
This notebook doesn’t just look cool on the outside. It is designed to not require a cooling fan, so it runs cool and whisper-quiet, for a very comfortable user experience. No fan vents to blow hot air on you, no whining fan noise when you’re watching your favorite movies. It’s cool, by design.
Perfect for work and play
The Aspire E 11 comes with a full-sized keyboard, all the right ports, and the full suite of Windows 8.1 productivity programs, so you can get a lot done wherever you go. Plus, the optimized speakers deliver audio similar to what you’d expect from larger notebooks, for surprisingly clear sound.

And the best of all is the price – 2.490SEK/€267/£190/$283 – because when I find my real mean machine – a hybrid laptop, I will put my money into that. FUJITSU Tablet STYLISTIC Q775 is what I have my eyes on. Only released in Japan so far.
As somebody has said – that while waiting of the right thing have fun with that is wrong ones.
So now am I read to take on the Hong Kong and Japan with new investments for both feet and brain. Only 13 days to go.
