The Start of a Love Affair...

It was love at first sight. I just took one look at his sleek, black lines, and I knew I had to see more. So, I spread him open to see what he had to offer, and I was not disappointed. In fact, he was more than I expected. And I knew he'd be with me everywhere I went.
My fingers fit him perfectly. Oh, Roomie begs to have a go at him, but it doesn't always give him what he wants. He's not meant for Roomie's large hands. Oh, no. He was made just for me...

Blah, blah, blah, okay, whatever. I'm talking about my new laptop!!!

Yes, folks, I am now the proud owner of an Asus Eee PC 4G, and I love it!

For months, Roomie had been showing me flyers filled with awesome, gloriously beautiful laptops that promise city-wide blogging opportunities, relaxing afternoons surfing from my favourite restaurants and cafes with internet connectivity, and a hot date with Ed Quinn. Well, okay, maybe not that last one, but wouldn't that machine be sweet?!?

Roomie is extremely supportive of my blogging, and he knew that I wanted to be able to do it anywhere inspiration strikes. Plus, he's always wanted us to have a laptop to play around with... even if this is technically my laptop, and he isn't allowed anywhere near it with a soldering iron.
So, he always had an eye out for a laptop to call ours... or "mine" as the case may be.

But I kept saying "Not until I get my dishwasher!" Yes, I do have SOME of my priorities straight. Yes, I still need a washing machine.

Well, I guess I got the message out there, because almost the moment after we bought our dishwasher, the opportunity to buy this laptop appeared. One of Roomie's coworkers was selling it, and he was nice enough to allow us to take it home for a testdrive. Well, as I said, it was love at first sight. And the price was hard to beat. It's been with me ever since.

The 7" monitor is perfectly readable, yet the whole unit is small enough to easily take around. It's the same size as my little spiral bound notebook. And we all know that laptops really should be small, right? Well, at least Roomie and I think so.

Yes, I'm happy. And I'm thankful everyday that I have such a lovely husband who bought me this awesome gift.
So now, we really can't afford those bon bons and swanky clothes, but I really love my little workmate. It works beautifully. And now, I'd even pay the full retail price for it.

Okay, go and get one for yourself. Really. Go Now.
