Umm... nothing too fancy. Mainly I'm interested in asking your opinions on different computer brands. I have been using hp for my last tuo computers but the quality has been decreasing so no hp anymore. Apple is also out since I don't want to learn whole new system and they are too expensive anyways. My mother has an Asus but I hate to write with it so I'm not sure about that one either...

My family's had some good experiences with Toshiba. I'd recommend it. Don't get an HP, because that brand is total crap.

My fanfic account:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland.
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

"Maria, this is what you wanted, right? This is my promise I made to you." - I wonder if Sega's original idea was to have the next Shadow be just a clone of the original "ultimate life form," but it wasn't a good business move I guess. They can't really pull the "twist" anymore because of the ShadowtH game despite never really officially confirming whether or not he's still alive.

I'm still going with HP, so I'm not helping on that front XD.
Acer is awful, though.

Wow. Yesterday was my birthday (23) and coincidentally the last day of my year-long journey in a university's writing course (that costed me 420€ but I never missed a day and can use it to replace the points i'm missing from 3 failed swedish courses) and today was my last day at this bar I've been working at for a month to get alcohol serving pass and certificate or whatever it is. Also now I graduate from restaurant- catering school as a chef too finally at the end of the month. It's been a long 3 years. I have bad memories mostly. Couple of things to finish up and one strong alcohol test to pass and I truly feel like opening a new chapter in my book afterwards. I think I mean that literally too as I need to finish my second novel.

Problem is that I truly have no energy to try and find a summer job. I just can't be bothered right now.

My Asus is holding up, but it's a fairly cheap one so not sure how representative it is :V. My old laptop was a Toshiba which was okay but its battery died about five times over to the point that by the end it could only switch on and stay on when it was plugged in.

I'd honestly just say looking at lists on websites for "best low/mid/etc-range laptops" and then cross-reference between them, see if anything has what you're looking for, anything you're not willing to compromise on (keyboard? Battery? RAM?) and go from there.

I see. Thanks for the advise.

If you want to create something with a computer then laptops are garbage. I'm planning on buying a real computer (like from maingear, https://www.maingear.com/custom/desktop ... php#buynow ) and saving my laptop for trips or something. You can add alot to the compuers on the site but the prices can reach ridicilous sums).

Hmm... maybe I'll just ask my brother to find a good one for me. He is quite good at finding suitable laptops for our family.

Is it just me or do the new episodes of Shingeki no Kyojin utilise flashbacks much more than the older episodes did?
"Jo mere uenig du er med nogen, jo pænere skal du tale til dem. Tal om indholdet. Brug tid på indholdet. Forhold dig til det, der diskuteres. Lyt til, hvad der bliver sagt, i stedet for hvem der siger det. Hvis vi skal gøre det her med demokratiet bedre, så starter vi der."

人生は苦痛ですか 成功が全てですか
僕はあなたにあなたに ただ逢いたいだけ
信じたい嘘 効かない薬 帰れないサヨナラ
叫べ叫べ叫べ   逢いたいだけ
