Ban on BLUE

Okay, I ain’t much of a crusade kind of guy but my Tita Rina asked this as a favor. Let me call her Reg, she’s my tita but she’s literally eight months older than me. Well, she sent me this and requested me to spread the word out through my oh-so-many readers. Pretty much self-explanatory if you ask me.

This is to warn you against buying BLUE brand laptops. We bought a unit last July 20, 2007 and after 14 months of use, it broke down due to a defective motherboard as per diagnosis of their service center. They want to charge us P15,000 for its replacement. We tried to reason with them since the unit is relatively new, and they have to do something about because the customer may not always be right, but customers still have rights! We believe that a company such as this has no place in their consumer business because they do not care about the welfare of their customers. WE PROPOSE A TOTAL BAN ON THE BLUE BRAND OF LAPTOPS!

See? Scary but the woman has a point. When she first mentioned this campaign of hers on bulletin boards in one of her social networking sites, I thought it was nothing. “Don’t buy Blue laptops!” Okay, I prefer red anyways. I haven’t got the slightest idea that “Blue” is actually a brand of laptops. I feel for her because our unit suffered the same fate as hers a couple of months back. And by some stroke of bad luck, both diagnoses are the same: faulty motherboard. Good thing ours made it to the one-year warranty, so all we had to pay the service center folks was our kindness. Anyway, laptops are known to have a shorter life span per se. So, just take extra care for those notebook owners out there. Their parts are more expensive and they’re not really upgradeable. Love your laptop. Hehehe.

PS: Let me just clarify that BLUE is a brand not the color. Hahaha.

You're talking about Acer, right? It was only recently that I noticed the Acer laptops come in blue. Now this is a disappointing news and to think the laptop has been with me for only a few weeks. I hope mine doesn't suffer the same fate.

Jai: I hope you do. Laptops are super handy. For any purpose. :P

KK: No, I ain't. Hehehe. Blue is a brand laptop, not the color. Did I not make myself clear? :(( Hehehe. Better you take good care of it nevertheless. (--,)

Good. Gugel mo muna before commenting about it. Ahahaha! Liwa-liwanag eh! Hindi nga kulay! Brand! :P

Ang hirap maghanap kasi nalabas na results eh blue-colored laptops. Hahaha!

Anyway, when buying laptops, I think, we should stick to not-unheard-of brands so it'd be easier to find service centers just in case masira siya. Ü
