New Laptop Owner by JohnSu New Laptop Owner by JohnSu
And by coincidence, I'm a new laptop owner, too! Hooray!

This weekend I met my first new (or refurbished) laptop - a Compaq Presario V6120US. She actually arrived at the beginning of the week, but I was at school so I couldn't see her until I returned home. ;_;

Well, she's a good, shiny machine. Took two hours of notes with it in lecture this morning and played some Kirby during the break with like 10% battery left to spare. This could be the start of a good quarter.

This picture, too, was drawn from my laptop! I'm having a bit of trouble adjusting to it, though, since it's wide-screen is just another way of saying midget-screen and I'm not sure how intense the color on the display really is. Well, gotta start somewhere.

But enough about awesome laptops and their lap-searing potential. You may have noticed that this is the third girl I've drawn with the vacant =D expression; this is actually something I picked up from Hidamari Sketch. This will probably not be the last time you see this. I've also tried coloring her hair in the style of Manabi Straight.

And as long as I'm throwing links at you and advertising stuff, catch! It's an online orgy of video game music and a lesser orgy of anime music for you otaku out there. I'm just doing this out of the goodness of my heart and some other shady ulterior motives.

Made in Flash

EDIT: Alright, I was hoping I wouldn't have to explain the holes in her skirt, but it might be that some of you have no experience with laptops whatsoever. Laptops get very hot when running, so placing it on top of your lap is actually not so good an idea as the name would suggest.

EDIT2: That last link up there is broken now, so I'm redirecting it to Google, which works.

reminds me of my first laptop. only it bursted into flames after a year of usage.
JohnSu Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Whoah. Didn't even know they were made of combustible stuff!
Inasda Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013  Student Digital Artist

At the time, I Didn't think the store who sold me it were serious.  Now I have the new HP Envy m6-k010dx, it doesn't even feel like it overheats.  But then again, I now plug in 2-3 fans so I wouldn't have to worry about this laptop overheating.

There are times when you are so engaged in your computer work that you do not even realize you are starving to death.
