as suspected, the machines in chee-na office are damn old.
and mine, according to outsourced IT guy, is at least 4 years old (inherited from predecessor).
heck, the desktop is even older than my old acer at home (i am currently using a fujitsu duo core processor - and i am already complaining).
funny thing is - my office pc hangs on me every day from 9am till lunchtime. especially microsoft outlook. open an email = reboot pc (repeat when necessary)
i dont know how to justify to my boss, but i really only want a new pc.
i even consider telling him, "why dont i bring my own laptop to work?" ie. mine is even more hi tech than yours!
any ideas? alternatively, i can just work half a day in afternoon.
i swear i didnt cause this problem!
ps. to visualize the extent of the stinginess, 80% of office still using CRT monitors. ahahaha...
