On the left of the picture is my new Ultrabook with my faithful Notebook on the right
In May, I ordered a new "laptop", the lightweight and compact Acer Ultrabook from my son, Angus in South Africa. I actually bought the machine myself using the money I'd made this year from writing articles and editing/typing up an important document for the Client. Our friend, Wessel, kindly brought my new computer up to East Africa for me. However, I never got a chance to change my documents and other paraphernalia from my two-year-old Notebook so I trundled the Ultrabook (still in its box!) and my notebook back to SA in September. Back home, our daughter-in-law, Amanda transferred everything from the old to the new machine and set also up my e-mail.
The new Acer Ultrabook is lighter, smaller and more user-friendly for someone like me who
It has its cons too: there aren't enough USB ports, so if I have to use my printer (which I brought back from SA as well), I have to unplug the mouse and work with the sensor pad to perform that task. It also doesn't have a CD drive, so I bought an external drive. I believe there is a gadget which called a multi-USB, so I will soon be looking into this possibility.
Meanwhile, I am getting used the smaller keypad and enjoying my new Ultrabook to the full!
I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.
