OooooWeeeeeOooooWeeeeeeOooooooo!!!! I paid for my tickets today...I will be actin' an ASS in Cali and Texas in May! Wahoooo! My friend is gonna take me around, he has some fun stuff planned....of COURSE I'm meeting up with cutie pie Amanda.....so excited to meet hurrrrr.
I bouught a HP Mini 1000 yesterday. So far....it's alright. I can't edit pictures or open too many browsers at once....the CPU is Intel Atom, which I've read is by far less crapulous then it's predeccessor, Via C7-M....but it still needs a few tweaks here and there. There are only two USB ports....good enough for most. Sucky part? There's only one shared audio jack...So I would have to switch between headphones and mic...HP should have kept the mic and headphone jacks separate...dunno what they were thinking.
So what do I like so far? I do like the keyboard...it's ALMOST the size of a regular keyboard. Have you tried to type on the smaller netbooks? Like the one Sony makes? The keys are like f*cking tic-tacs...I'm not kidding. You'd need your baby cousin to type for you on them things. The touchpad is pretty cool, it's wide enough where you're not feeling crammed. The right and left click buttons are on the sides, which makes it very simple to use...basically I can use BOTH my thumbs effectively.
I can't wait to take this thing with me on my travels next month! Battery life is 2 to 3 hours at most. Ah well......hey...It's not a friggin laptop, ya know? I'm keeping my expectations veeerrryy modest...for now.
This is the one I got....

...for about $480 USD. The candy-apple red Vivienne Tam one was HAAAWTTNESS but it was about $550 so being the cheapskate that I am, I opted for the uggo black swirly design. I dunno, maybe I should have gotten it.....eeeeps!Siiiiiigh...I dunno about you ladies and gents, but my gadgets don't need to drip in designer...I am NOT that vain....it's cool if YOU are though......which is why someone reading this post is gonna run out today and buy this beautiful toy and blog all about it and make me wanna deco-art my plain thing with plastic strawberries and rhinestones.....*snorts*
Anyway, I shall be back with a REVIEW soon.....on my true-blue choices of tinted moisturizers and foundation.
