Upgrading My Notebook: Search for Online Promos

As a beat writer for a locally published arts and culture magazine, I have been using an HP Compaq Presario – a trusty old laptop, running on Open Office, with an Alzheimer-like penchant for missing, dysfunctional, or selective memory. It’s got to be replaced soon, I should think, which is why I'm in a furious caffeine-induced pursuit for Dell online coupons.

I would like to have a new Dell notebook. As a beat writer for a locally published arts and culture magazine,Guest Posting I have been using an HP Compaq Presario – a trusty old laptop, running on Open Office, with an Alzheimer-like penchant for missing, dysfunctional, or selective memory. It freezes during Skype calls or mind-mapping sessions. It shuts down when the deadliest deadline is minutes away, and acts up when I am E-mailing a story to my editors. It’s got to be replaced soon, I should think, which is why I am sitting here at the coffee shop in a furious caffeine-induced pursuit for Dell online coupons.

I have used a Dell laptop before. A Latitude D620: the grainy grey finish of the lid surface made me feel important, and the shimmering silver-tone Dell logo made me feel even more important. I had received it from an ex-employer who wanted all his subordinates to travel, work, and play in style – in corporate or business style, that is. To which, of course, I had no objection. Though I was a beat writer (still am and will always be), the road-ready notebook gave me at least a sense of security. It gave me an air of a refined, polished professional – and the impression of being terribly busy, in the “in-demand” sort of way. That I wasn’t just a starving artist, and that I kept up with trends, and could afford, once in awhile, electronic gadgets encased in magnesium alloy.

I think that “once in awhile” has arrived again; it’s time for me to acquire a new electronic gadget encased in magnesium alloy. You can only imagine how long it took for me to save up for a laptop, given my compulsive shopping sprees! Anyway, I have bookmarked and copied online coupons for Dell Inspiron and Latitude notebook models, towards which my preferences are pointing; but if I decide that online coupons for other brands would help me gain even greater savings, then I will of course consider all the options.

Lenovo, I found out, is offering a Buy Now, Pay Later option – that is, if you use their online coupons. And on their website, Apple is advertising a powerful and customized MacBook Pro, with free shipping. HP is also marking some of their business notebook models with a discounted price tag. Dell, of course, remains the priority. My first positive impression from using the brand continues to last.

You have no idea how important my laptop is to me. If it crashes, then I burn. I use it to stay connected, write my stories, file them to my editors, edit and write captions for my photographer’s shots, read other news stories, keep in touch with friends and family: you know, basically let it be where my whole life depends. It’s not surprising that my current HP Compaq Presario dear has broken down in front of me. See? To upgrade my lifestyle –and save money in the process, using online coupons– I am still relying on the notebook. For that’s how and where I make my living.
