HP Laptop: CRUCIAL UPDATES MISSING
Me: I’m busy with this cat meme on Twitter at the moment, okay?
HP Laptop: No, I’m not letting you do anything else until you click on this message about CRUCIAL UPDATES
Me (sighing): Yeah, ’cause it’s not like you’ve not told me I can’t get these updates, like, 5 million times?
HP Laptop: Maybe the updates would include software to deal with sarcasm and exaggeration?
Me (clicking on the thing): You seem to be dealing with these okay at the moment.
HP Laptop: YOU CAN’T GET THESE UPDATES! IT’S AN EMERGENCY! THIS WHOLE THING COULD LITERALLY BLOW AT ANY MINUTE!!!
Me (closing dialogue box): Now who’s exaggerating? Now f***k off.
Laptop (in a hurt tone): Don’t say I didn’t warn you…
My occasional series about the cheapest laptop in the shop. Not an advert for HP as such, but an advert for sometimes, just sometimes, how buying the cheapest thing isn’t a false economy. Until it breaks and it is, of course.
It looks like it’s nearly three years since I posted about the acquisition of this little beauty: isn’t she lovely? And, guess what, she’s still trucking! I suppose it shouldn’t be amazing that a piece of technology should still be working after two years and nine months, but it feels that way…
