I got a letter this mornin what do you reckon it read?
The totally wicked awesome HP Mini-Note with which I’ve been carrying on a complete hardware love affair suddenly gave up the ghost in the wee hours of the morning yesterday.
Very little warning. 2.5 days with some spontaneous reboots. Which, honestly…isn’t usually the first indicator of hardware death. Although they were Black Screens of Death. I guess Black is the new Blue.
Now, this unit was purchased in May, 2008.
That’s right… I said May. Gotta be some kind of record for premature hardware death.
Found a few other folks seeing this same issue over at the smokingly cool HP 2133 Guide.com forums. Which still doesn’t change the fact that I’m looking at a 2–5 day turnaround on the repair.
Here’s some White Stripes to make us all feel better.
Performing…what else? Son House’s masterpiece ‘Death Letter.’
It said the Mini you love is dead
