I just got myself a laptop. Well, it's actually a netbook.
RM1,500. Plus all the other bullshit, it's RM1,600++.
Guess what I'm using to do this article now?
AM using Open Office, so when I present shit to potential and existing clients, I won't have the awkward moment when they see that the software is licensed to the 'Lord of Destruction' or 'Cunt-Kisser Inc'.
This netbook doesn't have a disk drive, but it has a 1.66GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. With 160GB of space.
There is a huge difference from using my normal desktop PC. With my desktop PC, it's like sexually-assaulting your 40-year-old wife.
That one has a dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM and I abuse it like a two-bit ho. It knows how to turn tricks.
This netbook is smaller, looks better, but is as dumb as a 16-year-old who doesn't know how to suck cock.
Use your tongue, bitch!
I had to guide it all the way.
With my desktop PC, I could open 20 different applications and 100 tabs of Firefox and IE AND it still can run a movie or two.
This laptop crashed my Firefox windows when I opened six apps at the same time.
What a lame virgin.
And I wouldn't be able to type as I am used to on the netbook. I started typing on a typewriter. A fucking mechanical typewriter. Using only two fingers.
I still type on keyboards like it's my father's old typewriter. This means that every two months, I need to buy a new keyboard.
My current keyboard for the desktop is missing the buttons for A, E, and a few more. So on my way home, I grabbed two cheapo keyboards and a laptop bag.
The two Logitech USB keyboards are only RM25 each, without haggling.
The first shop I went to was selling it for RM32-RM35. When I wanted to use my credit card, the sales assistant asked, loudly, "NO MONEY, AH?"
So I said, "No." And left.
The next store had better service. And cheaper price. I bought my laptop bag for RM48. Without haggling. I hate haggling.
It's big enough for my netbook and a few hard-copy movie scripts, some books, my AWESOME portable hard drive and tethered modem as well as all the other shit that came with the purchase.
I even have enough space for the USB keyboard I am going to use with this laptop. Using the netbook's keyboard will ensure that I will break the netbook after a few weeks.
And also the optical mouse. I. FUCKING. HATE. TOUCHPADS.
Yes, I am a cheap bastard.
But this netbook is NOT the cheapest I have seen. There's one for RM600++. With a 453Mhz processor and 8GB hard disk space.
The fuck am I gonna do with 8GB? My fucking THUMBDRIVE is 4GB already.
The shopkeepers shook when I asked them about certain units I know are under or just over RM1K. Profit margins, man, profit margins.
But this netbook is okay.
I just need to break it in.
Like a new hooker.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to rape this netbook and probably ruin my eyes as I complete an entire project on it.
