a thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute
In THIS instance, the two cute things are not kittens, puppies, or koalas. But I think the rule still holds, especially if you're a geek like me (or my TESOL prof, who might tackle me and take the little one from me when I see her in the hall today).
Behold, my brand new Asus Eee PC 4G sitting on the keyboard of my Gateway NX860S notebook.
I need to spend a little time hacking the Eee PC—not because it's crappy (it's not. In fact, the out-of-the-box configuration is really good) but because I'm a little, um, "specific" in how I like things set up.
For a little more perspective, the little guy is approximately 2 Gateway NX860S AC adapters by 1.5 Gateway NX860S AC adapters in size. That's wee.
[And yes, you CAN talk about the juxtaposition of two—count 'em, two—portable computers with an image of Yosemite in the background. But I prefer not to, at the moment.]
