A Major Desk Makeover

A Major Desk Makeover | Renee Alexis

I had the Lenovo Ideapad 14-inch laptop since 2017 and it worked well. It did its job for the past several years but its performance has declined ever since. Last year, it showed signs of giving up and I went into a bit of a panic because it's the only tool I'm using for my work. That's when I decided to start saving up so that I can afford a replacement.

The MacBook has always been my dream laptop and after reading and watching reviews, I was convinced that it was worth it despite how expensive it is. 

I saved up the whole year and planned to buy the laptop in January this year but circumstances didn't allow me to. Fast forward to a few months later and my old laptop acted up again and I just couldn't wait anymore. 

I went to CDO first but all the authorized sellers were out of stock and so I settled on just buying it online. It was anxiety-inducing but then the gadget arrived a week later and I was ecstatic. I bought a bunch of other accessories to upgrade my work from home setup and it's finally complete.

I made a video to document it all and it's up on youtube. You can watch it below. 😊 xx
