Laptop Upgrade

My wife’s laptop is slow and sometimes uncooperative. Somewhat like a toddler. It’s time for it to be replaced. The laptop, that is, not the toddler.

And the laptop is a little heavier than the current technology, so I got her one of them fancy notebooks

But she complained that the wi-fi wasn’t working. So I got her an even fancier wireless notebook

I think it’s great – the pages load instantly.

The only problem is that you have to boot it manually.

Or rather, podiatrally.

For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.

    Now that’s a notebook I can afford!

  2. Burrill Says:

    I have an extra Apple sticker you could put on the front of it. That’d make it seem even fancier.

  3. Ricky Anderson Says:

    But it would raise the cost to halfway between an arm and a leg.

  4. Some Guy Says:

    If the sticker glowed when you opened the notebook, it might be worth it.

  5. Renee Schuls-Jacobson Says:

    Hilarious. Did she give you “the boot” after that little trick? ;-)

  6. Rob Shepherd Says:

    Now she just needs a protective case otherwise known as a trapper keeper.

  7. Some Guy Says:

    She’s still using the old laptop, so no boot and no Trapper Keeper. But Trapper Keepers are an important part of back-to-school shopping, so I must add that to the list for my kids.

  8. Burrill Says:

    No, see, Ricky, this sticker is a couple years old, so while it works fine, it’s not the super-duper fancy-pants slick new product.* That means I can offer it for the steeply discounted rate of free!

    *Note: unlike every other Apple product, I think those Apple stickers haven’t changed in a while. The stickers I got with my iMac were the same I got with Snow Leopard, which were the same I got with my MacBook four years ago…
