I Have A New Laptop



Acer Aspire 4720Yey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If my exclamation points are not enough to express how happy I am now, I would fill up the whole article with exclamation points. Hehe...

Last Saturday past 4 P.M., I went to MegaMall Cyber Zone to finally buy my ever desired laptop for my birthday. I was with a friend of mine who would do the assertive acts for me. Not only I am a shy person but I also lack assertiveness in my system. When we reached MegaMall, we had our snack at this burger stand at the supermarket. We had ham and bacon sandwich which is heaven to taste. Not only it’s delicious but it only cost 39 pesos with matching drinks.

After our quick snack, we went straight to the Cyber Zone. We first dropped by at PC Live. I have decided that I would go with the Acer Aspire 4720 laptop so we just asked for the free items I could get from buying the laptop. The salesman offered a free HP printer and we asked if we could get an additional optical mouse. He refused to give the optical mouse and told him that we would check on other computer shops first. We insisted that I would buy a laptop that day and I would not hesitate to buy from their shop if they would give me the optical mouse.

We transferred to different computer shops and just asked for the freebies on the Acer Aspire 4720 laptop. Unfortunately, PC Live’s offer was the best from the rest. Other computer shops only offer flash drives or a Canon printer. We went back to PC Live and haggled for the additional optical mouse. We waited for the store manager and for her approval. According to the salesman, they could give me an optical mouse only if the free printer would be downgraded to a Canon or a Lexmark brand. Luckily, they gave in to the free HP printer and the optical mouse. Isn’t that great!!!

Congratulations! I was supposed to buy a laptop this year but due to some expenses that I'm anticipating, I have to move my quest for laptop next year.

Enjoy your laptop! I'll just be waiting for next year's cyberzone's techfair :-)
