This is farty. Full name: arty farty. (name is all in small caps because he’s kinda pretentious). Slim, sleek and sexy – what’s not to like?
He is a 13″ Macbook Air, with an i7 processor and he is my latest gadget buy – replacing my good old pink Sony Vaio, which was getting older and sicker by the day.
So the day he arrived was also the day after I cracked my iphone screen. So I really wasn’t in the mood for anything that day. Not even unboxing this beautiful piece of genius gadget could lift my spirits. But anyway, things has gotten better since then.
For one thing, he grew a mustache (which is actually a decal). I don’t normally like my men to have any facial hair but you gotta admit that this farty does look good with this mustache. Still pretentious but whatever looks good on you, baby.
Then I discovered Twitter for Mac. I’m a sucker for sleek interfaces and being a heavy user of Twitter, this truly contributes to the farty brownie points award.
Sorry echofon (within firefox), looks like this time round, I won’t be dancing with you.
Next up would be my obsession with photo booth (which has thankfully subsided). I didn’t really take photos with photo booth but what I did was even worse. I could spend a long period of time, just looking at myself through all the weird filters. I am easily amused and I do not have a problem laughing at myself. So this was perfect. The “chipmunk effect” cracked me up the most. As in laugh out loud kind of cracked up.
I am demented, I know. Worse still I too screenshots of these moments. These are just a few. Check it out:
This could keep me entertained for hours. FP gave me dirty looks and asked me, “So you got yourself a mac and this is ALL you do with it?!”
I ignored him.
So these are my two favourite apps on the Macbook Air so far. Twitter for Mac and Photo Booth
Finally, we got him a customized sleeve from Timbuk2. Somehow the order got glitched and what was meant to be a small sleeve became a large sleeve (not anybody’s fault. Besides, the good people at Timbuk2 has given me a 70% off discount code for my next purchase!). But I guess it’s cool. Now I can store my magic mouse and the charger all in one sleeve!
Check out the lovely Timbuk2 sleeve! Why pink? Because REAL MEN WEAR PINK. Plus farty is artistic. He doesn’t mind it one bit!
This is the Timbuk2 logo upclose. You can choose the colour of the logo when customizing your sleeve!
It’s handmade! The only thing you can’t customize would be the red insides. But I guess it’s okay, as red’s pretty universal.
I find it so cute that the Timbuk2 included these cool polaroid kind of photo tags. The sleeve was “born in San Francisco” because it’s customized! Cute!
So this is one last photo of farty, the mustached romeo with his pink sleeve. You gotta admit. this Macbook Air’s got swag.
