Important News

 I just got myself a new laptop. It is a Dell Inspiron Netbook Mini 12 which is essentially the sexiest laptop I have ever seen. She has a 12" monitor which is 2in smaller than my old thinkpad. The buttons are a bit smaller but I can’t really notice the difference. This is the largest Netbook yet and falls between laptop and netbook in size. It has an 80gig harddrive, 1gig of ram, 2.7 pounds AND came with windows XP! I don’t even have to deal with Vista! She is the slimmest sexiest electronic I have ever seen. I was looking into HP at home and then I saw her at Microcenter and was seduced. 

You can’t see that and and not want to touch. It runs pretty cool and I believe the only downside is the lack or CD drive. That’s it. And I can buy a auxilary CD drive with a USB hookup if I need to. 


  1. As much as you might want to cling to the familiar, the newer MS OS, Windows 7 is actually incredibly impressive. Did you get the 1.6 or 1.3 ghz processor? (Should be listed on the box somewhere)

    Here, watch Windows 7 running on a laptop far less powerful:

    This is a 1.6 and it’s not like windows 7 was an option. But given the choice of Vista or XP I’ll go for XP.

    That is a very sexy computer, but it doesn’t look like it has a trackpoint. What will you do? Anyway, I hope you and this new comp get along well and it lasts you many years. Were you able to get anything off of your old hard drive?

    I decided my attraction to was was a feminine appeal. I always tend to personify my computers… This may explain why I get so upset when they break even if I didn’t loose anything important.

    Re: Congratulations!

    It doesn’t have a track point! I am still getting used to the touch pad but I’m adjusting well. I think the issue is that I have been pretty heavy handed with the track point all these years and that sometimes makes the touch pad click things. Other than that it’s a sweet little beauty.

    As for getting things off the old Thinkpad Andrew or Skywalker6705 right above you has my hard drive and is awaiting an adapter of some sort. We shall see…
