Good news, everyone!
Yes! My new computer is finally here and ready to go. It's only taken 4 days of file transfers and installations... oh, and another 5 months waiting for it to initially come in stock. I coulda just bought something else, but I was pretty determined to get this one. It was well worth the wait though. I was prepared to be disappointed by it, everything else I've been excited about over the last year or two has turned out to be crap. But thankfully this time, it is most definitely not crap. It is fantastic.
It's an Asus N550JK. Yeah, its another laptop (personal preference), but it is a very good laptop. It's got the power I need to do all the cool stuff I've been wanting to do. But that's not my favourite bit. You guys should see the screen on this thing. I use an iMac desktop at work, and I might even say it's comparable to the screen on that (if not better, by virtue of having a higher resolution on a smaller screen). The vibrancy of the colours... crikey. Everyone's pictures and art looks 10 times better now, so crisp and colourful and shiny. Can't wait to see what I can do with it now.
So, yeah, I'm gonna start getting back into it. I'm hoping to put an end to these long hiatuses aswell.
Until next time, ta ta for now!
NOTE: I won't be taking commissions until next year. I just want to focus on my own things for a bit while I get a feel for the new machine.
