As mentioned on my previous post, I have decided to buy a laptop for blogging and freelance purposes. I have posted my preferences taking into consideration my needs and the amount of money that I am willing to spend.

I have made the mistake of asking an IT friend of mine, who is known for his passionate views on anything PC or anything IT. This friend of mine was particularly a favorite fodder for jokes and side glances–maybe due to his passion when explaining things. Anyway, I made the mistake of asking him via FB to comment on my choices by sending him a link of my blog. Not surprisingly, he came back to me with a decision. He surmised that my choices were all “crap” and mediocre at best. He was livid that I chose to spend money on something that will not last 2 years at best.

This exchange with the IT boy has made me waver on my convictions. I really wanted to get “Momo” this week, otherwise I will end up spending the money I slaved for a month to save. I have a feeling that if I don’t buy my netbook this week, I will never get to buy him at all. So, in short — it’s a matter of now or nevah.

I ended up getting the MSI Wind U130 and so far I am happy with my choice. Actually, this post is now written via Momo. I plan to keep it around for 1-2 years, depending on what happens next.

Momo is named after the character in a Japanese idol drama called “Kimi wa Petto” (You are my Pet). Japanese enthusiasts may notice that they guy who played Momo is the same person who I keep pining after.
