I’m a little sad and a little excited… My current little netbook is dying (not a new state, it’s been in decline for about 6mths) so I finally went and bought myself a new laptop.
Not actually writing on it yet, but I’m enjoying that it’s fast (SSD), it’s silver (well…) and it’s light (very light). The only weird thing about it so far (aside from adjusting to the predictable changes to the OS) is its name.
No, I don’t mean it started up and said, “Hi, my name is Barry.” Though these days laptops do tend to do those things (yes Cortana I’m looking at you), but it’s the range of these laptops… they’re called Envy. Which is just weird.
Seriously, try putting that in a conversational sentence… “I’m just typing on my Envy.” “I was just surfing the net with my Envy.”
Maybe they could bring one out called Sloth. That’d be hilarious. Though that actually describes how my current netbook runs…
Anyway, it’s nice to know I’ll be taking my envy everywhere with me from now on!
