It's the ONE!

Today's post is brought to you by Martijn's cute new toy! He used some of his overtime pay to purchase this little beauty (or very handsome machine... it still has no name and is thus genderless)-


Acer Aspire One

He got the 8 GB solid state memory model, so we'll watch for a good deal on a 16 GB SD card to upgrade the memory. It runs on Acer's flavor of Linux, Linpus (which sounds like a disease... "I'm sorry sir, you've got three months to live, it's Limpus."). It's so teeny and cute! I thought it would be really hard to type on due to the very small keyboard, but it's actually not that bad. I wouldn't want to write a novel with it, but for blog posts, it works alright! Martijn might live to regret me borrowing it to write this post. I'm already hooked on the frozen penguin game.

He monkeyed around with it all weekend, only taking a break to take my puffy headed self to the doctor yesterday (that's true love right there I tell you). Lots of "tinkering" lead to three crashes, one image reinstall, and one backup restore so far. I'm sure there's some sort of nerdy trophy for how many times you can reinstall your computer in the first 3 days you own it.

I leave you with a picture taken with the built in webcam.

I have a swollen face, be nice.
