I was very curious about this, so I decided to dig into my old pictures.
It's a part of my personal history. I've talked about it a lot of times. But I wasn't really sure if that's how it really happened.
Let's see what happened to my old PC (R.I.P., my old friend), and how on Earth did my brother "steal" the laptop from me? 22nd of July, 2014.
A few days after my old PC's death.
A month before that, my parents bought me a laptop. I wanted to build a "gaming rig
" (hehehehe, there was an AMD Radeon HD 6450 on that part list, once), but they bought me a laptop instead. It's actually a good decision, considering what I'll probably get
And as you can see, that PC in the picture is the dead corpse of my old PC.
It had 2GB of DDR2 RAM, an Ati Radeon HD 4650 (which served me well, by the way), and a dual-core Pentium processor @ 2.4GHz.
It also had a Hitachi 300GB HDD: For some reason, there's duct tape lying on the Ati graphics card: Weird.
Its life came to an end during the time I was staying at my other grandparents'. Basically, I brought my recently-bought laptop and my brother used the PC I left him at home.
It was inevitable. He was playing Roblox one night and there was a thunderstorm outside. That's at least my assumption. He then continued playing and then there was a strike, and the components got fried.
Sad, isn't it?
When I returned, I was shocked and angry at my brother.
We took the computer to a local PC fixer in Stolac (my nearby town), and we traded. He got whatever was left of the PC (actually, only the graphics card got fried), and we got this 2007 Fujitsu Computers Siemens Lifebook S Series S7120. Fujitsu S7120 for short. That's the one I use now.
So, my brother used that one, probably as a punishment for not taking any care about my PC, and I still used the newer laptop. (taken in 2015)
Oh, what a cutie. He played DooM when he was 5. :]
This is us playing Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas in my room: 21st of September, 2014.
Oh, the good, old days when he listened to me and wasn't so stubborn. :]
Now I realised that he was so young back then...
But in those pictures, he's using the older laptop! How come he's now using the newer one!?
Well... it all came down to this: 9th of July 2015.
As you can see, I'm in a different house in that picture. Precisely, at my grandparents (and that monitor in the background belongs to a PC which has an AMD Athlon processor, and a low-end, integrated GPU).
What does that mean, then? You can clearly see that I had the older laptop. My brother was using the newer laptop. During that time, he must've gotten attached to its performance, so he noticed the difference between the 2 laptops.
What a bad move, seriously. I don't know why it happened. I really don't know. Maybe my parents told me to leave the laptop to my brother, who knows. xd
And if you're wondering, no, this one happened after my PC had died. My PC died in 2014, while this one happened in 2015. Take a look at those dates I wrote up there...
There. That's why I'm now forced to use this trashy laptop: But I'll build a new PC this summer! HA-HA! But if I do the same mistakes as I had done them in 2015, then I'm screwed.
Also, R.I.P. my previous journal. It had reached a staggering amount of 181 comments and it shall be memorised as one of those journals which deserve to rest eternally, in the TWHL hall of fame. Rest in pepperoni.
