Hubby and I were perusing the aisles at Target this evening. Oh, wait. I perused. He walked quickly to what he came to buy. We were actually there for a number of really random things, including Halloween candy, moisturizer, and 3-prong extension cords… but I digress.
Upon arriving in the electronics area, where hubby was spying video games and no longer speed walking, I found this tiny little laptop. It was so small that I thought it was a scaled-down model of the real thing, until I looked at the price: $299. Intrigued, I had to study it more closely.
Though it looked like a portable DVD player with a keyboard, it’s actually a miniature laptop or a “laptot,” as this article about purchasing one says. Cute, huh? 🙂 This particular model from Target is from ASUS and I have no idea what that means! But it does a lot of what a normal laptop would do. It has wi-fi capabilities, 3 USB connectors, office work type of software capabilities, and some other stuff. I thought it would be nice to take it to Europe next summer for school so that I don’t have to lug my heavy MacBook. Sure, I would miss having Photoshop, but I wonder if I would miss anything else?
What do you guys think? Have you seen one? Would you buy it? (Am I behind the times and everyone knows about these things but me??)
