I have been using laptops since 2002. During all these years I have been given laptops as gifts or received them from my workplaces. But as my last job assignment was over a few weeks ago, I had to buy a laptop myself. I went to several stores and checked the prices. At last I decided to buy a Singer laptop. You would be surprised of my decision as Singer is not the best of brands for laptops or any electronic item for that matter but I stuck with them simply because they offered me an easy payment scheme. I was not known to any other sellers and they wanted salary sheets, guarantors, etc. which I could not provide since I was without a job and was waiting for my next. So, Singer was my savior and I bought a Singer SINX-243AT model laptop. Its cash price was 44,999 LKR but with the interest it cost me around 56,000 LKR. I don’t repent as it came as a blessing since I could only afford 15,000 LKR as the down payment.

It has the following features.

• Intel Celeron ULV 847 Dual Core Processor

• 2GB DDR3 RAM

• 320GB Hard Disk

• 14″ Display

• DVD Writer

• Wifi / Bluetooth

• 1.3MP Camera

• Intel® NM10 Express Chipset

• Intel® Graphics Video Controller

• High Definition Audio Interface

• 2 x Built-In Speakers

• Built-In Microphone

• Built In Touch Pad with Multi-Gesture And Scrolling Function

• External Monitor Port (VGA)

• RJ-45 LAN Jack

• 3 x USB 2.0 Ports

• Multi-In-1 Card Reader

• Microphone-In Jack

• Headphone-Out Jack

• No OS (Purchase Genuine Windows 7 Starter Edition Or Home Premium Or Professional)

• Carrying Bag

The laptop didn’t come with an operating system and I had to pay an extra 750 LKR to get a Windows Ultimate pirated copy installed. It works fine and it allows me to download all the Windows updates as well. They also installed Microsoft Office 2007 for me. I installed Avira free antivirus.

Performance of the machine is fine. It gave me a problem with its DVD tray within the first week but it was resolved by itself and is in fine working order now. I mainly do web browsing and writing with MS word and do some work with Adobe Photoshop. So far everything is fine with it. Few advised me against buying a Singer laptop but I don’t regret the decision I made.
