While I’ll still be doing a lot of the updating, I’ve decided it’s time to try out some new voices on The Snob. Our first new monthly contributor, you’ve read before, but now it’s official.
Introducing: Luvvie: (Fashion, Trends and Pop Culture) Even though all the Snobs are forever young, Luvvie is the youngest and the hippest of the contributors, staying up on the latest socialite/superstar gossip and trends (always high quality, no filler) and keeping you hip to her heavenly shoe game. She’s quirky, she’s unusual and she’s just the right snob for the job. Check out her blog, Awesomely Luvvie, under my “Partners & Contributors” tag on the right-side of the Web page.
This summer, I will not be satting down in one place for long because of my love of frolicking in hot weather. And I have a lot of projects going on, both for my 9-5, and for others, so I need to be mobile. Despite the fact that I have a CrackBerry, meneeds a laptop. So after weeks of hard contemplation, meditation (not really), and wide eyes, I have done it. Countrymen, blogosphere, lend me your ears. I, Luvvie Ig Baby, is now the proud owner of a segzy silver MacBook.
Yes, I of the Love of PC and all things Dell. I, owner of 4 PCs in the past 7 years, is now the proud owner of a MacBook. *hears chorus of boos from PC-owners* LibraSong & KindredSmile have already booed me and said I was a Benedict Arnold, but like the blood pressure of a Black Woman, eating po’k chops ALL her life, STILL I rise (c) Madea.
My main reason for getting a MacBook is because I wanted a laptop that was ultraportable and could perform well. Being the gadget geek I am, I consulted my Gadget Bible, Cnet.com and got reviews on all these laptops. However, I was pretty tied to getting a Dell since they haven’t let me down yet, but there was no super light Dell that had comparable performance.
Yes, I know PCs make the world go round, yada yada blah blah blah.
Sidenote: After I bought my MacBook, and carried it a couple of blocks, my shoulder started hurting. Got home and my shoulder felt slightly outta socket. This lasted a couple of days, and made a creaking sound everytime I made a sudden move. Who suffers a shoulder injury from carrying a 5 lb. laptop for 20 minutes? A mess is what that is. Jeebs be some weight training for me.
The PC loyalist in me is pained to admit that:
- This laptop is sleeker than a fast-talking Pimp with a slicky ricky hair do
- It’s lighter than Gary Coleman’s shoe
- Faster than a pregnant teenager
- Segzier than a shirtless Boris Kodjoe
- Doper than “The Corner” in Baltimore
Yes, yes y’all. This laptop is what I call “that business”. Sorry to my PC users. If it helps, I still got my Dell desktop. DJ Della is still my homie. *fist to chest*. I love my MacBook.
