You’d know a person’s innermost desires when you look into the content of their dreams, according to Sigmund Freud.
A few weeks ago, I awoke with a jolt to ex-roommate nagging me to wake up because she was heading for work. I was at her place, napping to keep her company, as it was her first night there. My dream was that…
I had supposedly finally gotten me an Asus eeePC on credit, and my parents were livid. I actually didn’t want to wake up because I thought I was really about to type on the tiny keys of my “new” Asus eeePC.
I was laughing at myself, because of how geeky my dream was. I was just savoring the experience of holding an eeePC in my hands, and I was just relishing being a geek gurl, not minding the furor of my parents. But alas and alack, I awoke, and had to go back to my own room, two streets away.
The vivid dream experience of having the eeePC in my hands, finally, was fun in the dream. In real life, though I still wonder how one would feel in my hands, how the experience would be, after The Chief Mover of the Cheese’s article on how the battery loss was significant, and after my OEM laptop dealer-friend/supplier had told me that so many of his customers sold their eeePC’s at cost because the screen view was just so painful, I no longer had a desire to own one. Unless someone would give me one, or I can snatch up one of those at half the price.
As for now, there is nothing more that I would want than a MacBook Air. The fact that it’s über-thin and über-light sure would be worth waiting for it through all those months of saving up for it. After all, nothing beats the Mac in terms of battery performance, not to mention the seamlessness of its Sleep function. 😉
