It’s official. Today the day I’m breaking up with my old laptop. The soon-to-ex was a Sony Vaio VGN-FS8900P. The insurance company supplied the replacement for my stolen PCG-505FX, and ever since our initial meeting, the VGN has kinda sucked.
The biggest problem in our relationship was the mouse pad. Or touch pad. Or whatever it’s called. As I would type, my hand would often tap the squared-off surface reserved for rodent activity, and my cursor would jump to wherever the arrow happened to be. Pain in the asterisk.
But now, I discovered that my new laptop -an HP TouchSmart TX2-1025DX, which already rocked in the first place – has an off switch for the mouse pad. And this mouse pad was never even a problem!
So to bid adieu to the old touchy touch pad, I’m setting up a dating profile for the VGN on WhataCache.com. See if you think I was fair.
First up, the picture. I couldn’t find an actual shot of mine online, and I don’t quite feel like getting up and taking a picture and transferring it to this laptop, so I found this:
LIKES: A fully charged battery, Windows updates, proper shutdowns.
DISLIKES: Coffee, soda… pretty much any beverage.
TURN OFFS: Dropped wireless network connections.
TURN ONS: Power button, electricity in general.
HOPES: To find true love with someone using an external keyboard and mouse (as not to intermingle with the pad)
