Review: iPod Nano

Yes, indeed, I’ve gotten the iPod Nano(Black)! I know it’s kinda early, but I couldn’t wait any longer.

I got it from the iShop at Cineleisure at S$348. It’s a very good deal as it comes with a freebie. Along with the iPod, it comes with an Audio Techica Stereo Headsets worth around S$50+. The staff there are very very friendly. I went there with my sister and we attempted to repair my old Ipod but the staff said its damage is too bad to exchange it for a new one.

Even before I took out the DV9202tx from the box, I can feel its power already. The instant I took it out, the first sight of it made me realize how beautiful it is, times more beautiful than the ones I saw in shops. The shiny surface reflects even the tiniest details, the HP logo depicts the dominance Hp has in the entertainment laptop market. I lifted the lit, and felt the surface, it’s even smoother than anything I’ve ever felt. Unable to resist my temptation, I tapped on the power button. Icons on the QuickPlay™ bar glowed with blue light, just like the powerful sun about to unleash it’s powerful sunlight. The uber clear 17′ WXGA+ screen displays the HP logo, and unknowingly, it was on Windows Vista the next instant. Unrivaled speed indeed. The moment I finished configuring the settings using the Synaptics Pointing Device, I knew buying this laptop was the rightest thing I did. It was one of the tightest moment I ever had in my life.

This summary thingy brings back very good memories, but it just sounds so wrong nowadays. If I would to give my lappy a summary now, it’d be:

Even before I took out the DV9202tx from my bag, I can feel its burden already. The instant I took it out, the first sight of it made me realize how many scratches it has, times more ugly than the ones I saw in shops. The dim surface absorbs even the tiniest details, the HP logo depicts the dominance Hp has in the entertainment laptop market. I lifted the lit, and felt the surface, it’s even rougher than anything I’ve ever felt. Unable to resist my temptation, I slammed on the power button. Icons on the QuickPlay™ bar glowed with blue dim light, with some of the parts unable to light up, just like the Malaysia’s Proton Waga trying to on the headlights about to unleash it’s ugly light. The uber clear 17′ WXGA+ screen with tons of stain on it displays the HP logo, and knowingly, it was on Windows XP the next 10 minutes. Surpassed speed indeed. The moment I finished configuring the settings using the Synaptics Pointing Device, I knew buying this laptop was the wrongest thing I did. It was one of the most boring moment I ever had in my life.

A little exaggerating, but indeed, my laptop is in a very bad shape now. It’s running quite slowly after 30mins of usage, takes 5 secs to open a folder and 1 min to right click on a file. Some videos stutters very badly, with corrupted sounds. The screen won’t off when I close the lid, but sparkles like the stars. My mouse cursor disappears at times when surfing the web. Everything is going very wrong, I have yet to contact HP for support and visit the school to reinstall Windows Xp. Quite disappointing indeed.

Anyway, might be creating another blog dedicated to Singapore News, Information and stuff to utilize the domain I bought a few months ago.
