I've revised my wish. Now, I just want to keep my apartment for another month.

Can't wait for this year to be over.

Re: What do you want for Christmas?

I think I want this Asus EEE PC from Target. Having wee tiny hands means the keyboard won't be a problem. The lure of a 2 pound, 300 dollar netbook is strong.

^ I have an Asus (not that model) and so far it's the most reliable laptop I've owned. I have horrendous luck with laptops and have been known to destroy most of them, but this one hasn't given me any problems yet.

Re: What do you want for Christmas?

^I would recommend against going with a model that uses a solid state drive. The performance increase is insufficient to justify the fact that you're stuck with only 4gb of disk space (much of which will already be used up when you switch it on) when you can get a much larger hard disk for a lot less.

Re: What do you want for Christmas?

Thanks for the advice! I do have a 150 gig passport drive, so storage isn't an issue.

Just to keep it on topic-
I want some new DS games, Crosswords DS and Let's Pilates.

Depending on the OS you choose, a 4gb primary disk is going to choke the system when it comes to virtual memory, web browser caches etc.

I want to replace the nativity scene in front of my local church with a satanic version. Mary being raped by rabid lambs, Joseph impaled in Satan's trident, a demon stuffing baby Jesus in its fiery jaws... the works.


And some say the spirit of Christmas has been lost.
