Its crazy. I went to megamall to buy my older sister her laptop. Because right now in our home laptop is like a cellphone. Each one of us has a laptop..lolz. Then I realize that my five years old 56,000.00 pesos laptop is outdated. Just think I bought my sister 30,000.00 pesos worth of laptop and her laptop specs is three times more powerful than mine!.. I feel Like selling my laptop for 15,000 pesos and buy new one. But who will going to buy an old outdated laptop? And the batter is down from two hours lifetime to 5 minutes only..lolz.. My cellphone is even worth 35,000 pesos. It seems laptops is finally a commodity.

Hi there Bulastika! Yeah, you're right. I think it's more convenient to have a laptop especially when you're working or studying and have to work on stuff while somewhere else beside your home. Almost everywhere, there are wi-fi spots and it is convenient to have the world wide web on your fingertips. It's better than having an expensive phone though since you can do more with laptop than on a cellphone efficiently. I mean if you only use your cellphone for calls and text messaging, then why would you invest in an expensive one, right? If you use it for internet, I think the laptop can do better than a phone especially if the specs of the laptop is good and considering the price difference, I think it's more practical to invest on a good laptop.

Laptops are always a commodity. Even cell phones are. All electronic products that get regular upgrades are! When a new model or technology comes, the old one gets outdated. I bought my Sony ericsson W200i for 5500 Rs. but now with that much amount of money I could buy a Nokia semi touchscreen or an Karbonn complete touchscreen phone. Not bad huh? But snoy ericsson never disappointed me. 3 years of rough use and not a single complaint! Regards, Ajith.

in my case, it's the other way around. i used to own a phone which is more expensive than my unit. though it's portable but i'm comfortable using desktop or laptop when surfing or searching or whatever. so i upgraded my unit and later bought a laptop. now my phone is multiple times cheaper than my unit.

I think cellphone is better from the laptop and its not heavy and can bring anywhere you wanted. and can have internet access even your just in the little corner. its so controlling that just for a month there is a brand new laptop and yours is obsolete.LOL!could be hard.

I envy you guys, I am working for 9 years now and until now I can't buy anything like that. All of my money are going to my family. Actually I have no money to buy my own medicine for my illness. If you want to sell your laptop, why not try Sulit.com.ph, just in case if there is anyone interested to buy it. You register first and that is for free. According to your specs, on the batter, I don't know if there is someone will be interested to buy it.

It's not strange that the cellphone is more expensive than the laptop. In our lives cellphone plays more important roles than laptop. Without laptop, many people could still do their works well. But without cellphone, the lives of many people will be in such a mess. In the future the cellphone will have more and more functions which only laptops had in the past.

Yea many cell phone's these days cost more than a laptop. Cell phone's are convenient when you need to get onto the internet fast. Its more convenient than dragging a laptop around with you. I would prefer a good smart phone over a laptop. I don't really like laptops because I can't use them without a mouse. I'm not good with those scrolling things, I always need a mouse, so I can't really bring them around with me because that's too many cords. About your laptop. Someone out there would buy it, you may have to sell it for cheap though. But your trash could be another person's treasure. Someone who doesn't have a computer at all might want to buy it.

That is one reason why I buy laptop every other year because I know that prize of laptop are depreciating and when your laptop become outdated it would be hard to sell them even half of the real prize. Last two years I bought my laptop and I think it is one the most expensive laptop of that time and it cost me 66,000 pesos or 1,100 Euros it was an acer with 4gb of memory and it was the first laptop that equipped with ddr3 memory and AMD Turiom x2 processor, and 512 MB of dedicate memory. This is 6 times faster than a pentium 4 but today it only causes 25,000 on the internet. I don't have plans to sold since I know how to upgrade the parts and that is one of the maid reason why I bought this laptop the parts are upgradable.
