John's Corner: A New PC

John Marine | 5/20/2014 05:06:00 PM | | | |
I bought a new PC this past weekend. Even with some strings attached and sacrifices made, I was able to get myself the Acer AXC-603G-UW30. Part of my adjustment to this new computer is using Windows 8. As I slowly began to settle in with this PC, I felt more and more able to do work better and faster with this new PC. Since only so much comes in the box, I used plenty of components from my former PC to set myself up with the new PC. Most of all, this computer has no monitor, so you'll need a monitor to use it. Let me talk a little bit about my new PC in this edition of...

Johns Corner
...John's Corner!





To me, my adjustment from Windows XP to Windows 8 (actually Windows 8.1) involves getting accustomed to a new interface and trying to learn the nuances of this interface. I have had absolutely no experience with Windows 7, even though more people prefer Windows 7. I began to settle in with this PC and with the various past programs I put on my new PC from my old PC. This new computer of mine is quite capable despite being so cheaply priced. I am not expecting to play any games that will really test the limits of its performance. Only modern game I'm playing most here as of this post is Minecraft. What I've enjoyed most about Windows 8 so far has been using the News and Sports apps. The Sports app gives me some data and insight on games and teams that I thought I'd only enjoy on Android more than I would on a PC. Cool stuff.

What about my blogging? Don't worry! I'm obviously back to blogging after trying to get accustomed to my new computer. I put in NoteTab Light as well as the special library I use for it to make typing blog posts easier. I probably will not post a review of my new computer, but if you'd like to learn more about the Acer AXC-603G-UW30, here is a link for you:

The early review is that this is a very nice PC for what it is. Nothing impressive or dominating, but it is a very serviceable unit that is a great PC for getting into the modern PC realm. I tried to get this PC on Amazon because there was a better deal for it on Amazon. However, I ended up buying this computer from a Wal-Mart. I'm still glad I got this PC and am now in the modern realm of PCs after years of using Windows XP.





That concludes another edition of John's Corner. I have a lot of posts I'm working on, so I hope you've enjoyed this one. More to come from yours truly. Thank you for reading!

Long time no see John! Congrats on the new PC--we just got one as well and I'm amazed by how advanced everything has become. Now they're so portable and sleek, especially the new all-in-ones. I have heard the Windows 8.1 can be a bit of an adjustment, but it's great that you're transitioning all right. I happen to like the 8.1 version quite well myself.


Also, I resonated with your attention post so much. I've come to realize that humans as a whole are attention-hungry and will got o great lengths to get it. And the difference between legitimate attention and spam attention is so large. I agree that I'd rather have one genuine reader than one thousand superficial ones.


Can't wait to keep up with all your intriguing topics!
