A Laptop Upgrade to L775D-S7305
I have been prodding and convincing this dear husband of mine to get a new laptop for him with a bigger screen, a bigger hard drive, and if possible, a touch screen, too, for his One Note files. Although he agrees on my prodding, he keeps on insisting that his current 15.6″ HP notebook still works well so he still is okay with it. He said he’ll wait for the tax refund as it is what he’s thinking of spending but I caution him that we might not receive any so better grab a deal when there’s one up for grab.
Sure enough, I received an ad in the mail for a Toshiba Satellite L775D-S7305 which was on a 30% discount. I tempted him to get it and I succeeded. Reading all the positive reviews first before buying it convinced us that this is a good notebook, and yesiree, the husband has been enjoying it since it arrived last Thursday! 🙂
It runs on a AMD Quad-Core A6-3420M Accelerated Processor under a Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), SP1 Operating System with a AMD® Radeon™ HD 6520G Graphics Engine.
It has a 4GB DDR3 1333MHz for its memory, 500GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial ATA) for its hard drive, and a DVD-SuperMulti drive (+/-R double layer) for its optical drive.
Its display size is 17.3″ widescreen (which tempted the husband the most, hehe) in a HD+ TruBrite® LED Backlit display with a Headphone jack and a Webcam.
So far, everything is great for this notebook! We feared that we might feel like a stranger with a Toshiba Brand since we’ve been a Dell and HP users but I trusted the 95% of users who rated this product as a 5 over 5 and in the first few days of usage, there is no complaint whatsoever! I think the Quad core helps in giving the user a very fast performance!
Now, we’ve added Toshiba to the brands that we love! 🙂

At my old job if I had wanted to take a day off I would’ve had to put it in writing then run it by the human resources manager for having my boss sign off on it. That’s definitely the best thing about being my own boss: getting to decide when and where I work. I love having a home office and being so close to the kids during the day and it’s also really great being able to take an hour or a whole day off if I need to. I only get paid for as much as I work so it’s really up to me whether or not I can maintain my same level of commitment while at the same time keeping my clients happy. I’ve also had a good time learning about things like t1.xo.com and graphic design… Neither of which I had any idea existed before I started this company. I feel totally prepared to take this business through 10 more years or to shut the doors if I decide I want to be a full-time mom.
