My Laptop

Update I upgraded to 8GB RAM after I got into Android programming

I wanted to buy a laptop this year. Moderate weight, compact screen, and decent battery life were my criteria. In terms of hardware specification, most laptops these days have 4th gen Intel i3 processor, 4 GB of RAM with 1 TB hard disk. Finally brought HP Pavilion Notebook – 13-b102tu.

My laptop will look like this. By default, it came with Windows 8 pre-installed and UEFI secure boot. I’d to downgrade to legacy boot to have Debian installed wiping windows 8. I somehow didn’t like Gnome 3, so switched to Gnome Classic desktop and started installing software. For the complete list of software I use, head over to my tools box.

The Synaptic manager had most of it except the real Firefox and Firefox developer versions. But I worked around to install them on Debian

After installing all of them, this is how my desktop looked.
