green is not my color...


or: the Kaos family's further adventures in tech consumer whoring...


Once upon a time babies Mr. Kaos had all the cool tech in our house and I had none.

Sad huh? He had is nice computers and recording equipment and palm pilots... and to be frank I was a little too busy to deal with anything except my basic computer.

You know... I was a little busy with the kid, wanting desperately to move back to Portland from the sub-suburbs and trying to figure out just why I was feeling like a libido lacking frumpy lunatic...

Once all that got worked out (well I still have to deal with the child... but what can I say... I love her) I somehow, slowly, over time, started to acquire some fun tech. For the past year or two I would say that I have been the spoiled queen of technology goods in my house. I've been very lucky and Mr. Kaos has been very good to shower me with the computery devices I coveted most... even though I am silly enough to call them "computery"...

But now with a single purchase I feel as though the tide is starting to turn.... He has a new computery thing that I love and covet... even though it's only been in our house for a few hours I can't help lusting over it. Looking at it longingly. Dreaming of holding it in my hot little hands and pressing its half scale keys...

Oh EEE PC how I yearn for you... in pink.

****

Mr. Kaos decided to go sideways on the technology road. He was considering giving up his Treo in favor of an iPhone but decided to add on this hot little tiny computer instead. he says it's the hot tattooed chick of the computer world...

I guess he has a type with computers and women...

I've never heard of the EE PC - glad you linked *lol*.

I myself want an MacBook Pro. I'm getting one as soon as I remember where I hid that spare $5k...

Tattooed chicks are always the hottest.

I am so very happy with my new MacBook Pro right now that I am going to just pretend not to see that there are new gadgets to be had out there...

It is a beautiful little thing.
But too small for me. I hated my laptop enough - that thing would drive me INSANE.
