New Laptop and Other Stuff

A couple of weeks ago, I decided that I needed a new laptop. I didn't really need a new laptop, but I get these little urges that tell me some new piece of equipment is going to allow me to virtually plug a PC into my head and make it really easy to think with the thing the way I want.

So I ended up buying a Sony TR3. My dream is to have a full blow PC with me at all times that's both easy to carry and that serves me as a sort of high-end multimedia player. The TR3 weighs three pounds and I'm getting about 4-5 hours of battery life and so I think it's working out well.

The funny thing is that I was really torn between this machine and the 64-bit Acer Ferrari laptop. I finally decided that I didn't really rate a Ferrari, and that I would look a little silly with one of those. If it had been blue and said Ford on it, I probably would have gone for it.

For what it's worth, I ended up finding a great community site for TR3 owners. Funny how important that sort of thing is becoming to me as I make purchases.
