My current laptop I’ve had for over 4 years, and I got it from the refurbished bin at Dell.com. It is old and is having difficulty keeping up with the ever changing and increasing demands of the internet. As you may know, I pretty much live on the internet. I’ve put this Dell Vostro through a lot, and I worry that it will not last much longer.
Upgrading to a new/er laptop will assure that “the homeless guy” continues to be around for years to come, educating the masses about the realities of homelessness, from the unique perspective of a homeless person.
Among the things I want to add to the blog is video. I got myself a new Flipcam recently. It takes great HD images. Now I need a laptop that can actually handle the additional burden of editing and loading those larger, more complex, files.
For my part, I will continue blogging, and I will continue selling The Contributor, so to afford all the other necessities of life, rent, food, etc.
This is the computer I’m shooting for – if by the end of June I still don’t have enough money for it, I’ll get the best thing I can afford with your donations.
15″ 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
-750GB hard drive
-SD Card Slot | 7 Hr Battery | SuperDrive
-Intel HD Graphics 3000 & AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB GDDR5
Your help is appreciated beyond measure.
Thanks in advance,
Kevin – The (formerly) Homeless Guy
