last month, my buddy just died on me. i know im no expert but believe me, with all i know, i did my best to revive him. nonetheless, he showed me no response so i immediately rushed him to the nearest person i know how can. hoping, he could still be with me. but after three weeks of waiting, the (bad) news finally broke everything. he was already a hopeless case.
its just depressing to know that ill never see or feel him the same way again. whats left of him will forever remind me of the years we've been together; of all the secrets we had kept and all thememories i have cherished with him.
so to you my beloved laptop, may you find peace and solitude in cyber shangrila.
now, i am in search of another comrade.
last week, i was browsing some new laptops from one computer store to another when my attention was caught by this headturner.
this is the Asus Eee PC 1008P-KR designed by the famous industrial designer karim rashid. its weaved-like exterior gives it that classy, chic and industrial tone with a touch of relatable local color. it also has a very unique braille-like track pad that maybe awkward at first but you''ll eventually appreciate it, once you get used to it. the keyboard is also notable for it is relatively easier for a user to navigate and find its way to the necessary buttons. it weighs around 3lbs and almost an inch thicker than the awkwardly thin mac air.
although internally, the PC 1008P-KR doesn't really promise something extraordinary compare to its competitors, it still stands very suitable for netbook users that don't really need big system cruncher programs.
it runs on Intel Atom N450 (1.66 GHz) processor (also known as the pinetrail platform, which is the advance versions of the intel atom processors such as N280 and N270, that saves more battery power without sacrificing its performance), 10.1" WSVGA, LED backlight display, 2GB DDR2 memory and 320GB hard drive, which can also run the new windows 7 operating system.
i guess, for people who value first impressions, but with a notably competitive specs, the asus eee pc 1008P-KR may be a buddy you would want to take under serious consideration... and hey, it also comes in pink!
i give it 3 and a half out five avocados.
