This weekend I was trying to remove my caviar nails…as I’ve only just moved I had no idea where my regular nail polish remover was but I did find some pure Acetone.
Stupidly, I was leaning on my laptop and blogging whilst removing polish…big mistake. The Acetone reacted with the plastic of my Macbook and it made it bubble up and turn into a matte finish super while glob (it looks like someone spilled paint on it and it can be peeled off, but it can’t). D’oh!
I would’ve been a lot more upset if it wasn’t for the fact that my laptop is about 5 years old now – which is about 240 years in Laptop years. The face is every Windows laptop I’ve had gives way after a year or so by my beloved Macbook is my workhorse! In a few months I’ll try to get a new Macbook Pro seeing as mine is on it’s way out.
However this got me thinking. As a beauty blogger I am forever spilling things on my computer. So, if I was to create my dream beauty bloggers laptop I would include 4 things…
1. Be NAIL POLISH REMOVER AND ACETONE PROOF
We multi task. So we take polish off whilst trying to do other things on the computer – tragically accidents and spillages happen! Grrr
2. Be glitter and pigment resistant
Almost inevitably, make up will get spilled OR sometimes when you’ve just touched your face or applied some make up and touch your keyboard BAM! There’s make up everywhere. Or worse, pigment, which never seems to come off and glitter that falls down the side of the keys. Argh! What we need is a tray you can remove that collects all this stuff and you can just throw it directly in the bin.
3. Have a coffee and snack tray
Us bloggers are up all hours so we need an area for snacks – I am guilty of putting my doughnut on the wrist area of the laptop or resting my cup of coffee there. I have actually changed my laptop keyboard once before because of spillage. Some kind of tray area that pulls out of the laptop would be EXCELLENT.
4. Have a keyboard blocker
I have been known to fall asleep on the keyboard, and also my cats love to walk across and type something like ssadfjhklxxxxxxxxxxcjjkasaf. Keyboards need a weight recognition system! If its lighter than a fingertip, then it needs automatically block the keyboard.
That’s all I can think of!!!
What kind of features would your dream laptop have?
