Well im back here after all this time...and yes its still working. now you ask why how ???!
Let me explain:
I DON'T USE IT !! yes its sitting here not being used coz im afraid if i use it too much itll break.
the screen already has a problem as if a wire is tilting inside so when closing and opening the screen it becomes all different colors and all.
As you know its now not a 9880 but a 9890 (due to the new motherboard i talked abt months ago here).
i use my acer 5620g now all the time, its way more stable and great for games too (i only miss the big screen on the 9890 otherthan than no need for it).
thus u knw my decision is never to buy smth that makes too much noise and too big..coz in the end they lack a lot of things other than the super specs (like a great warranty, international sellers in middle east, more compact,more stable,etc etc).
As you can see i regret buying it coz im the only one who would care for it, any1 else who use it won't know its too sensetive and needs alot of software and drivers when installing windows or wtever so it can be annoying for other and would ruin it if now did all the extensive research i did about it years ago when i bought it.
I leave you in peace and make your own right decision don't be lured into smth that only looks good. id go for smth guaranteed to stay alive and satisfy me from factory to company to reseller, who ever is reading this you are the remaining 9880 owners here
