Martha Stewart on Laptops May 27, 2009

martha-stewartI was having a nice cup of tea and looking at the new HP netbooks (they are thin and quite colorful) when Martha Stewart walked up to the counter and we began to chat.

Martha: Why don’t the manufacturers cover laptops like this with a surface that shows a little quality and style? What about fo-leather or other type surface.

Stew:  I got a leather cover for my little Sony VIAO here.  See… (I pull out the laptop from my “man purse”)…

Martha:  That’s nice.  Why does it wrap around in such a strange way around the back of the unit?

Stew:  Oh, that’s my big battery.  The cool leather case is not big enough to nicely wrap around that bigger battery.

Marltha:  Sort of messes up the entire look don’t you think?

Stew: Yes.  But there are worse cases out there.  Like the sort of cases that come with products like the Amazon Kindle

Martha:  Oh don’t get me started.

Stew: You have a kindle?

Martha: Right here (pulls it out of her “girl purse”)

Stew: Oh the new model

Martha: Yes, but look at this “huge” case.  It’s just so big!  Can’t they make it form fit around the device?  I mean, you open it up and inside you have this really sleek but fragile device.  Then you wrap it with this cover that gets in the way and does not look very good either.

Stew: I agree. But it’s an improvement over the version-1 case.

Martha: A big improvement, but still needs a lot of work

Stew: The first case was “free” but this case is something that you have to buy.  It’s an extra.

Martha:  So what do you think of this little laptop here?

Stew: Rather bright colors don’t you think.

Martha:  That case is…  You know what… (she opens the case and looks around the unit – opening and closing the screen top to see from every angle) – I don’t like this… I would not buy one of these in a million years!

There you have it!  For those that want to use this quote (or put a different spin on it) you can say that you carry a laptop (a netbook) that Martha Stewart would never own in a million years.
