I just picked up a great little Toshie at Dick Smith. It has an i5 processor, 2gb RAM (I’ll add more later) and 320gb HDD. I was after a 13.3” i5 but this 14” was offered up at a great price so I grabbed it.
When I bought my last laptop (Sony Vaio), I made the mistake of just using it. I didn’t realise there were things I had to do BEFORE I started adding programs and data to it.
So, here’s what I recommend.
- Take the machine out of the box and plug in the cable. (Doh!)
- Turn it on.
- The start up process begins. If you have Windows Home Premium, it will ask whether you want to set-up 32 bit or 64 bit. Here’s the deal. Choose 64 bit if you have 4gb or more RAM AND
