do you own a laptop?

Postby jtan on Thu Oct 09, 2003 3:35 pm

just wondering.. just felt lately that owning a laptop is quite fun, it's looks comfortable to be able to surf anywhere you are seating at home from dinning area to your bed... isn't it?

WPC54G (802.11G Wireless PCMCIA Card)
WRT54G (802.11G Access point with 4 port 10/100 router Built in)

Yeah, I have a Dell Latitude D600. I love it. Built in 802.11a/b/g. Centrino CPU. My only complaint is the hard drive. I got the 5400RPM one and can get a little hot. Unfortunately, its located under the palm rest.

I have a Gateway Solo 1450, and it's great! It's an older model, but it's small and reasonably fast, and it has good battery life, too! :D

I feel bad/embarrassed:
I have a very nice Sony Vaio in mint condition (outdated processor by current standards) that I bought in early 2001, that is just sitting in my closet and hasn't been used in almost two years!!!

Maybe I should use it again for bedtime surfing :)
It has wireless access...

I almost sold it three times without even trying:
To my mother so we could give it to my father for his birthday
To my brother's fiancee
and recently
To a cousin from Europe who is studying here now).

Each time they asked about it, even though I wasn't actively trying to sell it.

Funny! :)

I think that might be a tad heavy to put on one's lap. ;)
