New toy

| | Comments (0)

I'm staring at a tiny screen. It measures 9 and 3/4 inches by 5 and 3/8 inches. Otherwise known as "11 inch widescreen", because it's 11 inches on the diagonal, and the height to width ratio is that of a widescreen movie theater. The whole computer is 7 and 3/8 inches by 10 and 3/4; smaller than a piece of paper. It's less than an inch thick.

I bought myself this Sony VAIO laptop for traveling. The company I work with had given me a laptop, but it was old and clunky and weighed a ton. I wanted something small and light. This laptop is unbelievably small. It weighs 2 pounds, 12 ounces. I love it. I am enchanted by it.

I didn't, however, intend for this to me my *only* computer. It was to be for travel only. Until I came home from work today and heard a horrible noise coming from my Dell. I don't know how near-death the Dell is. It still boots up and I can still use it, but I've transferred all my pictures, music, and important stuff to this tiny machine. It has a 60Gb hard drive, so there was plenty of room for all my personal stuff and my work stuff as well.
