I took it to a repair shop I trust and they had to send it somewhere else to find out if the machine can be saved. This means I had to wait for a month.
But I cannot wait for a month.
So, I decided to buy a new laptop with Linux pre-installed. As my brother Megatotoro had a very positive experience with ZaReason (and I envied his Alto laptop, to be honest), I went for this beauty: the Strata 7440.
- The Bard's Tale (real funny)
- Revenge of the Titans
- Worms Reloaded
- Snuggle Truck
- Hero Academy
- Braid (I love the concept of this game!)
So, the balance tilts more into the positive side than into the negative. I only need to figure out how to solve the webcam thing...
