Meet my New Baby, ASUS Laptop K42F Series


Last week I bought ASUS K42F Series Laptop. As an online marketer,  of course, I will not buy without doing thorough research from different reviews and forum sections in searching of the affordable but best laptop that I will use  in order to work freely on my online part time job during my break-time hours at the office.

Luckily, I found one, I used to have ASUS desktop computer at home, I am satisfied with the quality that ASUS is offering that is why it was my first choice. I bought my ASUS desktop last September 2006 and I am happy  that it’s still kicking and alive till now.
