" Not that i dun want to sell to you, if you buy this, then if got problem a, then dun complain its hardware problem. Its becoz you dunno how to install. Even the HP people hor, oso can't solve the problem. You wanna try? You pay 300 more, then we sell the CQ20-126 and install Windows Vista for you la.".
I've bought a HP Compaq Presario CQ20-125 from Midvalley.
The Shop owner Mr Uncle was not so friendly. When one of his technical sales Jeffrey explaining to me on the OS & drivers, he was so annoying saying the above. But then, I look through the hardware specs, i love it. And the price is much more cheaper than the outside market. Since Jeffrey is helpful enough...
Yeah. I wanna try :) Myself.
Reason 1: I dislike Vista. Yea, XP 'terminating' soon. Fine, wait till then i'll change,not reluctantly.
Reason 2: He is challenging me - "You dunno how to install. " - If i fail, i will consult Cyclops or Pig King.
Reason 3: It's 12.1 inch. Muacks.
Reason 4: I can't afford ASUS U2E and that 'creature' not @ Malaysia yet.
Reason 5: I need a personal laptop, and the 1st time i'm using my own money to buy it. That feel..haha
Reason 6: I believe in myself. And that's the reason I write this down in my blog, announcing : Yes, WinXP can work in HP Compaq Presario CQ20-125. Not necessary on Vista.
