The Temporary Magic of a Shiny New Toy

The magic of shiny new things is simply irresistable. Once you get your hands on a shiny, new object freshly bought and smelling all nice your mind tends to be oblivious to everything else. Your heart swells with joy and for that moment in time your whole body is filled with satisfaction and you could ask for no more in life.

I am currrently under that spell. I am hypnotised by the mesmerising craft of the Lenovo S10 ideapad notebook.

*Smiling dazedly*

After my sister's persistant badgering, I finally consented to let her have my old trusty Compaq and move on to a smaller 10' model. As much as I loved the old lappie and was reluctant to let it go, it just makes sense to let Aimee have the Compaq since her needs are much more diverse. Plus I feel that since she's living in a 22-people dorm, those with itchy fingers will have a harder time running away with the bulky 14' inch Compaq (although Nauzubillah min zalik. Let's all pray that that wont ever happen). And that is how I ended up with my pristine white Lenovo.
Of all the colours in the world, white is probably one of my least favourite. Simply because with me, anything white turns into a dirt/ stain magnet. This goes way back to my schooling days. and is not limited to merely clothing. Give me anything at all that is white and trust me I can turn it multicolour (although the colours would primarily be within the brown family) within one hour. So I'm challenging myself with the Lenovo white. So far I've had it for more that 24 hours and I've managed to keep it white. Me so proud. So yeah I've still got all the plastic coverings on it, but the main point is I'm keeping it white right?

The Lenovo S10 in brief:

Genuine Windows XP Home
10' LCD Screen
160GB HD
2 year warranty (1 year International + 1 year Local)

And thanks to the Great Lenovo Mid-Year Promo I got a really good bargain. I spent RM200 below my anticipated budget and have all the laptop knick knacks that I needed. Yeay!

Major thanks to Ashraf for being there with me and prevented my shallow side from taking over. It must have been a major ordeal seeing as how I was more attracted to a laptop's attractiveness rather than its function. Fortunately the Lenovo is a combination of both function and looks. We were both appeased.

So while the glow of satisfaction is still strong, I'm happy to stay in my room, be a good girl, do all the work I'm supposed to do and ask for no more in life. Now let's see how long this feeling lasts.

Welcome to the gang of IBM/Lenovo users.

If the Ideapad is anything like the Thinkpads I've used before, you'd definitely be in love with the ultra comfy keyboard.

I swear I can only do my best typing on mine.

hoho thank you thank you. Actually partly the reason why I bought the lappie was because I remembered that you were totally happy with your IBM so I was quite convinced that it's a good product. I'm looking forward to coming up with more blogposts on this little baby :D
