    I have girl hands. My fingers are only as long as the letters on this enormous keyboard.

    That may be fiction.

    But...you know...fuck you.

    Do you paint your nails?

    I've got a Dell Mini 9, dude. I'm really loving it so far, especially for the price.

    Even if you got the bare minimum version, you can get 2GB of RAM to upgrade it for $25, and a 32GB SSD for $100.

    The only thing that's been bothering me about it is some of the choices they made for key place on the keyboard.

    The quotation mark key is moved down next to the spacebar, and the Right Shift key is really super tiny, so it leads to some typos.

    I pretty much won't own another Dell. Though the one time I needed tech supports they did give it to me for hours.

    I cannot believe the new 17 inch macbook is $3000.



    I'm going to get one anyway, but now I'm going to wait till my birthday rolls around and see if I can at least con some of the cash for it out of friends and loved ones.

    The only thing I really dislike about netbooks is the lack of a disc drive, but I figure if I really needed one then I'd just buy an external DVD-ROM or something.

    I unno.

    Wait no, I saw a show on this once. Ummm, don't get caught by the cops. Charge a lot of money, and then don't let the dudes do anything. And when you give a blowjob, you just sorta mime it and it's more a handjob, apparently. I don't know that hooker looked liked a dude and it was weird.

    Seriously spent half of my day after I got home this morning looking up netbooks.

    And finding that laptops like mine could be obtained for less than a grand now. OH HAPPY DAY

    It was on HBO, I think? One of the older hookers was gonna give this guy a blowjob for a pack of cigarettes, but then he wanted one of the cigarettes too so she said no.

    You're essentially paying for the right to blow Steve Jobs, not the other way around.

    Uhhhh

    you may want to cancel the SSD, since it won't fit into the Mini.

    Here's where to get one that's completely compatible with the Mini, and even includes a video tutorial on how to install it.

    After I got sick of repairing my desktop, I got and Asus Eee PC 4G. I wanted the 701, but this was $250 with a way-outdated but upgradeable PDA and a few goodies. It's perfectly functional. The hard drive's way small (4 gigs), but it has a SD slot and a few USB ports for for portable or temporary storage and I already have an external for long-term non-portable storage. It's way underpowered compared to what I had but more than enough for everything I do with any regularity.

    Plus, ya know, it's so tiny!

    No prob man, here's the instructions for installing the theme on Ubuntu:

    Lifehacker Guide for HP Mini 1000 theme

    and here's a really, really great resource for setting up your mini with ubuntu proper, instead of Dell's version.

    In addition, not this upcoming Ubuntu update release (Jaunty Jackalope) but the next one (Karmic Koala) is gonna be very netbook-friendly.

    Until you get the larger SSD, you can always pick up a 16GB SDHC card for $25 on newgg or something.
