    Actually knew the words without translation! Looks like im getting there. :P And I was born in Holland. Lived there for 5 years then I moved to England. Its really annoying when people ask me do you know the lang and I say no.

    So I want to learn the lang. My mum showed me videos the other day of me speaking in dutch when I was 4. Sad to say I didnt understand a word.

    Goed gedaan, well done.

    Whereabouts are you from in the Netherlands. I resided in Noord-Holland in a homely historic city called Hoorn, bet you've never heard of it haha. I lived there pretty much my whole life moved 7 years ago and been living in England ever since. I do miss the food kroket, frikandel all you have here is sausage and vinegar! :unimpressed:

    Dutch isn't a very hard language but we use the letter "G" a lot it feels like something is up your throat :rolleyes: Are you actually dutch by blood then?

    Ik ben 21 jaar.

    I'm quite fond of the main cities Rotterdam and Amsterdam thinking of doing my masters back in the Netherlands after I finish here. I spoke Dutch throughout my stay in Holland and it used to be my first language. I speak very little now as English has kind of taken over. I meant to ask if your family was Dutch since you were born there.

    Heeeyyy, alles goed?

    I have seen that in the shop en mijn broeder said to me that i should get it! I had no idea that it could be reverted to windows 7! that makes it so much more appealing, I was a bit dissapointed with the RAM since a couple of HP were 8GB and for a less price also, but like i said before the hinges seem like they were gonna snap any second.

    Dankje wel!
    Hey, sorry to interrupt your conversation. But I bought asus notebook a couple of years ago and tbh it is crap. Personally, I don't like it, it is slow and I bought it from PC world.

    Well the online assessment was a breeze and once you pass it you choose what time your want to attend your interview. Then once you get there, you have to do a role playing activity and if you pass that, you're practically through, you just do a one2one with the manager to sort out the formalities such as availability and such.

    Have you been doing proper notes after lectures from the start? And do you use the library to revise much? I think I still have quite a few lectures during reading week sadly.

    Don't be sorry! I don't think the one he recommend was a notebook, but I don't really know the asus brand, I personally know HP is decent. But thanks for your input!

    Hmmm...
    I'm an owner of such machine.
    The question of is it worth it depends on what you are looking to get out of your machine.

    For movies, editing, no anti viruses, virtually no crashes and BSDs, virtually no load times and super fast solid state HDDs, sleek look, battery life you get 6-8 hours, apps, having windows and mac operating systems on one machine then yes they are worth it.

    But if you are looking for graphic intensive applications (mostly gaming, macs can handle your average aftereffects and photoshop user and even cinema 4d rendering), overpricing they like to charge a lot for it, new to mac os, extortionate extended warranty (the sods want another £300-£400 for extended 3 year warranty on top of the 1000-2000 you pay)

    So it depends on what you are looking for.
    For a normal student who just wants an everyday laptop its not worth it.
    For a dedicated editor/graphics person someone who wants both a windows and a mac world then yes.
    Bare in mind you can also have mac os on a windows machine ala hackintosh.

    So is it worth it for you? You are a "normal student" after all... Unless you're heavily into editing and graphics?
