Ramblings of a gadget pumped SEO Chick

I’m sitting in a cafe, its 4th of January 2008. Working from a cafe as the wireless connection in my office is not working. A little bit of a ironic start to the new year, an interactive department without internet access lol. But I’m not complaining as it gives me time to plan, ehm well when I say plan, I mean go out and spend money. I just spent �200 ($400) on a ASUS eee PC(bargain!). It�s tiny, and sooo cute. Like a hobbit PC, the only problem is that it has hobbit keyboard as well, which means that even my tiny thin fingers seems like giant hands and i keep on feckin typing the wrong thing in. But hey, I’m the Shires answer to Carry Bradshaw, sitting here in the cafe typing away looking out on the very busy shopping street of Kingston upon Shite, ehm I mean Kingston upon Thames.


Oh god I love gadgets =) The smaller the cuter, but before you ask, NO its not feckin Pink. I hate that, every flipping gadget targeted at women are pink. WTF? Pink is my cryptonite and I would be dead if you saw me wearing it. And imagine the pain I feel when going shopping for my 3 year old daughter, its all PIIIIIIIINK. Why oh why?

Anyway, back to my BLACK Asus eee PC, I know you are jealous Andrew ;) This gorgeous little PC only has 512 RAM and a 2GB hardrive, run on Linux. Ok I see you flinching, but hear me out. It has wireless, built in web cam, open office (documents, spreadsheets and presentations), LCD screen and not bad speakers for a little diddy thing. But it also have slot for a memory card, 3 USB ports, display monitor output AND you can install Windows XP on it. But maybe most exciting is that it has a solid state hard drive (SSD), no booting up just 10 seconds and you�re in. SWEET! You can also get this baby with a 4GB hard drive, and upgrade the RAM quite easily. My boyfriend (Steve, yeah he has a name, he’s real! I am Cyber Bridget no more lol) bought the 4GB one as he’s an ultra geek and want to pimp it up like an old escort ;)

Ehm�.slight edit, I just changed my 2GB for a 4GB one, turns out I want a pimped up Escort as well ;)

This hobbit PC has received quite the cult following on the net and loads of eee forums have popped up for how to upgrade, hack and otherwise improve your gorgeous Asus eee.

And lastly how can you not love a PC with the cheesiest tagline EVER

Asus – Rock solid � heart touhing

You got to LOVE it =)

    I thought you were dating Esrun?

    Sounds like an extremely cool product…well done review too. A hobbit PC, ha!

  2. lol ahh I do love Esrun for his darth wader black hat magic =) A little too young for me though.

  3. g1smd says:

    I think I’ll be needing one of those.

    It just isn’t practical to lug a 19-inch wide-screen “laptop” around all day any more.

  4. I gotta get me one of those! Apparently they are coming out at 1GB RAM, 8GB, 1064 x 600 screen – I have only to wait a month to see… and order it from Japan :( and wait 6 months for production :( :( and on and on and it’ll be 2010 before I get one
    Or just get one now! YAY!
    THANKS for this – I’ve been wondering and want one!

  5. Julie Joyce says:

    Obviously if all of you are going to get one I also must have one. Steph and Anita, let me know if you guys get one. I cannot be left out of this. Ahem.

  6. Perhaps we should contact the supplier and do some sort of promotion deal – “This laptop recommended by 5 out of 5 SEO Chicks – get yours today!”

  7. Julie Joyce says:

    Nooooo Google wouldn’t like it.

  8. NO NO NO!

    Judith, it’s only 200 quid, even I can afford one and I’m a single mother!

  9. Nooooooooooo!!!!!!

    I meant it in a silly way if we all *BOUGHT* one.


    Bad Judith – no cookie for you!

    And really – how relevant would that link be anyway, right?

    @ Judith – Your suggestion of a chicks recommendation gave me quite a giggle – have I had too much chocolate today or not enough?? The chicks could start rating all sorts of random things… 1 out of 5 chicks recommends ass juice, 3 out of 5 chicks recommend the Riviera for drinks, etc. :)

  11. Julie Joyce says:

    Steph may also recommend ass juice. Steph? It can’t just be me can it?

  12. Tony Spencer says:

    Julie’s mention of ass juice caused a nasty reflex in my throat. Never again will I drink the ass juice.

  13. Julie Joyce says:

    “Never again will I drink the ass juice” is truly the funniest quote we’ve ever had on this blog. That is just awesome. The ass juice didn’t affect me so poorly but then again I was the only one not chasing each shot down with a beer…someone had to stay sober to watch you boys and assist Irek with punk rock selections on the jukebox.

  14. @Melinda ya! I was thinking about that cat food commercial when I wrote that.
    I can say right now that 1 out of 5 SEO Chicks love The Chocolate Society chocolate truffles (because I don’t think the others have tried them) and that 4 out of 5 SEO Chicks enjoyed chocbait chocolate M&S truffles!

    I’m so glad I never drank the ass juice :D
