As of yesterday my mum has a much nicer laptop than me. An Acer Aspire R3 11.6":
- Twice the battery life
- Twice the storage space
- A ripply surface finish that looks like it might actually survive some wear.
- 10% cheaper than mine was
She's wasting no time rubbing it in.
Let's also just put aside the fact I spent the day before Christmas fixing this damn thing again because it locked up halfway through an update. Who needs the stuff in their /usr/lib folder anyway?
My mother will not win. I will prevail. My laptop will be born anew.
I wonder if matte black book contact material exists, it would be nice to put on the top + insides. I'll probably only be able to find shiny stuff. Even better would be something like 90's era black rubber thinkpad finish.
Any ideas as to what I should cover the top with? Do you know of any clever sources of contact-like stuff or different ideas?
