Finally – A New Computer!

In July 2017 I published a blog post about my good ol’ desktop getting tired and that I’m looking for a new computer. I did look for a new computer. Unfortunately, life got in my way, and it took me somewhat longer to get there.

Finally, 15 months later, my old computer had to be replaced. It was time. The desktop took up to 18 minutes to properly start, and sometimes it needed a few tries.

Months ahead I had gotten all possible information I could get to compare different laptops for writers and asked the most stupid questions to computer experts to get the answers I needed.

Armed with all that knowledge, I decided on an ASUS laptop and went to the store, meeting a very patient, very polite, humorous and friendly young man who obviously knew what he was talking about and who did not try to convince me to buy something else when I told him what I was looking for. He just recommended me a particular model and explained exactly why.

That day I got a laptop, software, a mouse and a keyboard and took everything home. It took me nearly two months to move all data to the new computer, occasionally peek into the old one to check how I did this or that or how the settings were in that or the other program.

About a week ago I eventually said ‘goodbye’ to my old desktop and took it to the store where I originally bought it, over eight years ago! (Thank you, Fujitsu!) The store will take it in for species-appropriate disposal. May it rest in peace.

To the interested parties: I got an ASUS 2-in-1 Q525UA, laptop. ASUS calls it ‘The Powerful And Elegant Convertible,’ and I admit, they’re right.

It has a keyboard as well as a touch screen, display and sound are incredible, it’s 15″ display has an unbelievable quality, and the entire laptop is light and easy to transport. Of course, there are many more features, but let me tell you: It’s easy to work on and doesn’t need much space. I’m very happy with my choice.

Should anyone be interested in knowing more about the ASUS Q525UA, check out the ASUS Website HERE.

I’m not paid to promote my computer. I only published this post because I think it is an amazing laptop for writers – and I promised in my July 2017 post that I would be informing in a blog article what computer I bought.

  1. This is something I must embrace in 2019. My desktop pc crashes and argues with me far too often to be healthy, so must be replaced. Not sure how, for funds are sorely depleted, but a refurbished model might be the way to go…
