RIP Laptop

Dear Laptop,

We had a great run, you and me. You were like my dog except I never could do the things I did with you with a dog. Or at least, that's what they tell me.

We laughed, we cried, we raged, we spent many quiet moments together. You heeded to my every keystroke, and I to you well lit lcd screen. Every time I turned you on, I became lost amidst the bits and bytes you showed to me.

And now you're gone. To be temporarily replaced by an excuse of hardware called a netbook. She could never replace you. No, you were more durable, much faster, more responsive, more screen space.

I never thought I'd say this, but I miss you dearly. And hope that once your hard drive comes in the mail, we'll be sure to carry on what we had. Sure, some things won't be the same, but I'll try to gather the pieces we had saved and look forward to make new ones.

Your User,

Pago

PS it only seemed fitting to play "Computer Love" by Zapp & Roger

  2. Luckily the first comp I made is still running well, I know its dying. But I don't want to get rid of it, even though it peforms terrible in games. It is like a part of me, very strange.

  3. Haha, I hate using netbooks also, keys are usually too small, screen is horribly small, machine itself is usually really slow...

  4. The relationship between a person and their computer is one the most important in our lives nowadays, almost as erotic as between a person and their musical instrument. Good thing someone honors that :)

  5. That's too bad, netbooks are poor replacements for full sized laptops. I hope you can find a new one to fit your needs.

  8. Your younger and more-hip netbook. The experience of a laptop with the waistline of a netbook.
