Well, my mom just reformatted it herself; thankfully saving me from the trouble when I got off work.

Also, said laptop runs on Windows 7, and is identical to Asagi aside from being mostly silver (Due to being an HP instead of Compaq) and it having a Celeron instead of a Sempron.

sempron? new processor type? interesting. xD

also, speedy appears to be having a good day today, since my wireless card is working. ^^

i should get her an icepack, though, since she feels a little toasty. :[

No, Kari, the Sempron has been around since 2004.  It's AMD's equivalent of the Celeron, and overall a pretty shitty CPU.

aaah. okie.

so if i was to personify the Sempron, i'd make it look exactly like the Celeron, only with an ahoge, braids, and a leek. >w<;

Red-Machine

Well, the Celeron is a pretty shitty CPU, too.  They're both low-budget offerings.

but the celeron is the lesser of two evils? :\

Penti-chan

While both are not that great, I personally feel the Sempron is the better one; they tend to feel more powerful. After all, my dad's desktop runs circles around my grandma's PC with a slower processor and less RAM (Well, until I upgraded that part).

Also, while we're on the subject of low-end processors, I remember one of the guys at Game-X-Change, when he heard that I was planning on building a PC (A project that ultimately became 2k-tan the Desktop), tried to talk me out of a Core i7 and instead get a Celeron and overclock it. Obviously, I ignored him

Chocofreak13

why would you overclock a processor when a faster one is available? you could just overclock the faster one. :\

Red-Machine

Cus faster processors are more expensive, Kari.  It's more cost-effective to buy a slower one and overclock it.

Of course, I had no intentions on overclocking; in fact, this Core i7 running stock gets near perfect scores on the Windows Experince Index, so overclocking won't make that much of a difference.

@red: i meant a SIMILARLY PRICED one. ><;

hmmmm... I'm probably going to switch out my board for a AM3+ socket and get a AMD Phenom II x6 CPU... That is going to rock!

Penti-chan

I almost went with one of those for my desktop, before ultimately going with a Core i7 (Since I was replacing a PC that had a Pentium 4 HT, it only seemed right that the replacement was also capable of HyperThreading)

Chocofreak13

man, i feel like a noob. >.>;;

Windows? OS X? Hah. I've forsaken even Linux at this point

I have no need for these petty "systems"
"Operating systems," they are sometimes called
"Gladware Containers"
Not anymore

I've overcome all of that nonsense.
I've switched to DOS again.
...and by doing so, I have entered the matrix

from using DOS

Sabayon is treating me well too, FYI. Ever since I switched to it a while back. But don't tell DOS...
