Laptop Woes *OMG she's done it again!*

So get this:

Just had my birthday and all.

Been wanting a laptop for a considerable long time.

And guess what?

I got one.

She said it was a good computer with a good hard drive.

I should have known.

And its a blast from the past:

Grandma's god damn 8 years old Windows '98 with a 2.5 Gig drive.

My collection of music is twice the space of that hard drive.

And I didn't get any money for my birthday so far, so its not like I can go out and buy myself an external hard drive or whatever (those things are spendy!).

And I got Ubuntu test thing (cuz of course, I'm not close to a computer expert as SOME people are), and it won't even load that because it doesn't have shit for memory.

And the thing is a HONKER of a BEAST! And a fat one too: about 3 of barry's laptop staked on top of the other would be about the size of this one.

She's done this to me before where she's dumped her big bulky ass grey scanner with software thats incompatible for this computer......

I should have known she would try to stick me with her outdated computer equipment.

I'm laughing, but crying more. Its thoughtful of her, but god dammit I just wanted something I can rely on for a laptop and not more problems.

So, what would you do in my situation?

And: What would you do with 2.5 Gigs? o.O

I'm going to go cry myself to sleep now.

Re: Laptop Woes *OMG she's done it again!*

I'm quite surprised your music collection is only about 4 gig o_O

Shitty deal you got lumped with there.
External harddrives don't cost too much, you could effectively get another one.
But my advice?
Sell it for what you can get. Save up for a better system.

Re: Laptop Woes *OMG she's done it again!*

I was fucking jipped.

I obviously don't mean a damn to my family to spend some money on.

Re: Laptop Woes *OMG she's done it again!*

Here is an idea, stop whining? You got it for free, if you dont like it pawn it off. Honestly, there are so many people who would kill for that laptop. You should take what you can get in this world.

But yeah, jaxon's idea is the best. Don't bother upgrading it, evem if you did get a new hard drive and ram the computer migh not be able to handle it and just crash.

Also, you claim they do not spend any money on you, but I've seen your red bass, that thing is not cheap.

Re: Laptop Woes *OMG she's done it again!*

Delete all of the crap on it... And just use it as a work computer. Use it to do Word and other small programs. If you want to listen to music, use your iPod or something. You want a computer to dick around and do random crap to? Start saving your cash. You can get a REALLY nice customized Dell computer for about $1000. Start saving your cash.

pwned? <_<


who did you get the laptop from exactly? O_o
just use the laptop to surf the web and do homework, like corbenk said at least you got it for free.

i was gonna buy a new laptop but instead upgraded my ram fomr 256 to 1280(just bought a 1gig stick) =P.

for your case, its not worth it upgrading. so just stay with the laptop or give it to someone who will actually appreaciate it. =D

Idea: Get a job.

Jk Sakatsu...you know I think you are cool. I suggest putting Damn Small Linux on it and use that as an internet portal.

Re: Laptop Woes *OMG she's done it again!*

Sorry but I have to say that is.... pretty much junk....I found a suggestion that works for me...Never show your family that you may want something, so they will ask you what you want....THen ask for money...Then use that to get what you want..
