Seven Days, Marvin

Seven days, Marvin. Seven days.

You have seven days to convince me that I secretly love you and don’t want to replace you with that new computer the grad school will be giving me. Seven days to convince me that a new ThinkPad is no better than a 3-year-old Compaq. Seven days to start running quickly, quietly, with a functional touchpad and mouse, and not freezing, virus scanning excessively, or randomly mutating my files.
Seven days.
Seven days.

One thought on “Seven Days, Marvin

  1. Natalie says:

    And the new Thinkpad comes with tech support from the school, right? Or maybe that's only for med students.I think Marvin's going to be kicked to the curb…though personally I wouldn't put much trust in his replacement either, but he should last more than three years. 🙂
