Hey, what’s that on your lap?

Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more.

Picture this:

You have recently bought a laptop from HCL. You are sitting in the quiet comfort of your home with the laptop on your lap (say). One of your mates (i.e. friends, in case you were naughty enough to think otherwise) comes over and then:

“Hey, what’s that on your lap mate?”
“It’s my brand-new Leaptop!
“What? What in heaven’s name is a Leaptop?”
“It’s my brand-new laptop.”
“Oh…then why is it called a Leaptop?”
“Ahh…Umm…Because it’s more than just a laptop!”

At this point you don’t know who’s embarrassed more – you for possessing a Leaptop or your friend for asking what’s a Leaptop.

I don’t know who came up with that name, but “Leaptop” is the new laptop/leaptop range from HCL. You can choose from quite a number of Leaptops. There’s the Leaptop C9504, the Leaptop D9906, the Leaptop C9509, and the Leaptop L5903.

I don’t know about you, but I already feel like Leaping from the Top.

Arun, I don’t own a Leaptop myself. Just saw and ad in PCWorld and couldn’t suppress myself from blogging about it.
