Jesus Would Buy the Acer Netbook

Here’s what Woot is selling on the front page of their site at the moment:

Not that I need another computer right now… but any company that lets the following be their sales pitch is a company I want to do business with 🙂

Picture 2

Both Jesus and Mo would probably also like modern toilets, but we’ll save that for another day…

    It’s already gone! Now it’s a stupid coffeemaker. 🙁

    Does Jesus handle ACER tech troubleshooting? Perhaps he can perform a ‘miracle’ and poof the French XP operating system on my Acer into English! (i accidentally installed the wrong language)

  • Peregrine

    I wonder if Jesus can help me with the faulty temperature senor in my Acer laptop.

    It’s probably in response to “What would Jesus buy?” on Sundance tonight at 9pm with Rev Billy and the Church of Life after Shopping. Billy Talen is a great guy who gets over his anti-consumerism in the guise of of “Rev Billy” who is I suppose you would call a homage to the techniques of southern baptist preachers… (He is actually ordained in the Universal Life Church so is available for weddings – he married us!) BTW I don’t agree with everything he says but he’s great to talk with and is very serious in what he does…

    Come on. Everyone knows that Jesus would be a Mac guy.

    Or at least teach you French.

  • Windows isn’t available in the Middle East according to their licencing agreement. Sorry Jesus but you’ll have to stick with Linux.

    One thing that’s worth a try would be to open up the Control Panel and launch the Regional and Language tool (globe icon). Change everything there from French to English.

    Actually, a bit of Googling makes it look like this won’t work. You’ll probably need to reinstall.

    Trust me, I’ve tried everything. Even getting ACER to send me the requisite installation dvds (which they did) and then me buying an external drive to do the complete reinstall….and still no luck!

    Even if you have completely sworn off material goods and you live in a cave, etc., you should wander down out of the hills and find a connected computer daily to read the pitch on Woot. This guy or girl churns out a compelling yarn daily making a power adapter or a snow scraper the funniest (and therefore the most desirable) thing to you. And sometimes you end up clicking ‘I want one!’ Well, I have anyway.

    No No. The Snake in the Garden of Eden would be a Mac Guy. — The iMac of Good and Evil.

  • Curt

    He’s got as much evidence about what Jesus wants as anyone else does on Earth, so I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

  • muggle

    Aack!! No!!! This is the only computer I have (which sucks). I do not like to think I’d do what Jesus would.

  • Aly

    I concur with those above. I’ve had terrible luck with my Acer. I’ve begun documenting my issues on Twitter using the hashtag #acersucks. Join in: the more the merrier!

    I can totally imagine a Mac commercial coming out of this conversation.

    MAC: Hi. I’m a Mac.

    PC: And I’m a PC. We’re here in the Garden of Eden with Eve, who’s deciding what to have for a snack.

    EVE: I could go with the PC figs…

    PC: Fresh and delicious!

    EVE: …but they give me gas. I’m going with the iMac Fruit of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

    MAC: Thanks.

    EVE: Self-awareness, consciousness of right and wrong, godlike wisdom. It’s the most sensible choice!

    PC: Oh … I see … Well, what if I throw in some of that fruit from the Tree of Life over there?
