Wait, protect those batteries

It will not come to a shock to anybody reading this website that most stores no matter where they sell always rely on up selling to make extra profit. Everyone has their own view points on this but my issue is how far some companies will go just to make that little extra …

When I was out in town shopping around for a new laptop it came to my attention that I will need to buy some new batteries. Seeing I was already in a store, I looked around to see if there was any cheap batteries and to my surprise there was.

Laptops of the past …

As you may have seen yesterday, I wrote up a blog article that compared the Ubisurfer 7 and the Dell Axim x30. Of course, these are not the only systems I have owned (although I never owned the Ubisurfer 7) over the years but sadly I have to say that the Dell Axim x30 is the only system that actually worked for me that is still active.

In the comments Adam Wright (Click here to see comment) said that I did not have any luck with technology of course he is wrong and below I am going to prove it by listing all the laptops (well, not all only the ones that have something “nice”I can say about it) I have/had and what happened to them. Some of the pictures below do not actually match the model I had, but they look just about the same so please do not moan they do not match.

Ixtreme Repairs Ltd Review

Well, it is very rare that I have ever done a review on an actual company before but I have to say, first time a company has impressed me enough for me to actually write a review.

So, let take a jump back abit. As you may know, my HP Pavilion dv9000 fucked up a while back and there was a time I just disappeared of the Internet. Well after alot of phone calls, e-mails and a letter to HP that we didn’t get anywhere. However, instead the laptop was sent to Ixtreme Repairs Ltd to repair.

Ixtreme Repairs Ltd offers motherboard repairs and after I sent them an e-mail, I got a reply back from Terry. By the look for it, it may be a one man show but regardless, the customer service is wonderful. While it can take some time to get a reply (I have always e-mail at odd hours though) the repair work is solid.
