Welcome onboard, my new baby – Acer Aspire 5052

Hi pals,
Yes, I’m blogging from my new laptop Acer Aspire 5052-ANWXMi to catch up the fast lane of Technology & for preparation. Already having a desktop which I bought in my college days in year 2000, after doing several formats and R&D’s, it started losing its components one by one in installments…first HDD, then RAM, CD writer, CD reader…I tried maximum to upgrade it to hold for sometime, but after spending 7K I’m not satisfied…its getting restarted simply lost my hope on it. Almost for the past one month, I was going through magazines, laptop reviews, calls for quotation, price comparison..etc. It was really a hard decision to go for a laptop while having desktop but decided with lots of MS hope . And also it was a tough for me to select the brand, selecting the processor, with graphics card or not etc. Finally traditional AMD or Intel..??  Nodded for AMD after checking it from their website. Here is the config :
Aspire 5052ANWXMi-1GB
 AMD Turion-64 X2 Processor TL50 (1.60GHz, 2 x 256KB Cache), 1024MB DDR2 533MHz Memory (1GB),
