Finally, my netbook arrived

It's so cute and little. The Amazon shipping box was no larger than the usual ones that I receive books in, and light as can be. It's an ASUS Eee PC 1005HA-VU1X-BU 10.1-Inch Blue Netbook, purportedly with a battery life in excess of 8 hours. Here's the first shot of it out of the shipping box.


Look how small it is when next to my regular desktop, which incidentally only has a 19 inch monitor.

Despite it's small overall size, its keyboard and touchpad are quite workable (purported to be 93% of regular size, but it feels about 85% of the desktop I'm used to working with). There's also built in bluetooth and even a webcam!

Since I can't wait to take it out to play, I crocheted this very gaudy case last night using scraps. As soon as I determine the best case to buy, it will have a more stylin outfit...I'm thinking body glove material or something water-resistance.

Very important question, folks: What should I name it? Is it a boy or a girl netbook?
