Next, the real point of this post...
Isn't it adorable? Ninja is my new netbook, an Asus Eeepc 1005HA Seashell. She's a very dark blue, which that picture doesn't really do justice. She's also got a matching mouse (which is also tiny and blue and highly adorable, but I didn't get a picture of them together).
This is why I have named her Ninja~ She is a stealth pc, blending into her surroundings. XD And omg did I mention tiny? So fucking tiny. Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny. Very high-gloss, too, as you can see there, which means so much dust and fingerprints but it's okay. We can't all be perfect.
Not even, as you can see, engineers. XD Sorry for the lens glare there, but without the flash, it was too blurry to read. Caught that while I was booting up Ninja for the first time. Somewhere out there, there is an engineer going 'Dammit! Why didn't I spellcheck the startup screen! >('
Ninja runs Windows 7 Starter, which has some assinine limitations on it, but other than the little annoyances, I'm pretty much in love with how streamlined it is. I can't speak to any of the fully-functional versions of Windows 7, but for a netbook OS, it's not bad.
Of course, part of that could be the remaining squee over having this adorable little baby sitting in my lap here. Ah, I'm in love~
