Laptop! [Jun. 19th, 2005|01:39 pm]

I am posting this from my brand-new laptop. It's a fantastic machine. I was just going to get a temporary machine for access while I was in an unstable housing situation, but I'm seriously considering making this my main machine for a while. We'll see. But it will suffice quite nicely for the month in which I don't have my desktop set up, and for a while after that. Whee!

Still trying to come up with a name for it (and by extension, a naming scheme for my network once I get it set up in Seattle). I'm thinking of schemes based in either an anime series or a webcomic.

I also toyed with naming it Nescaflowne, and calling my server Starbach. But that may not be a good idea.

Edit: As staedtler pointed out, I should have included specs. The machine is an HP Pavilion dv4020. 1.8 Ghz Intel Centrino processor, 1 GB RAM, 100 GB HD, 15.4" widescreen LCD, internal 802.11 b/g, DVD+RW drive.

Also, it's shiny. SHINY!

I concur. Do it, man. That's the most creative naming scheme for computers that I've heard in ages.

Brand, model, and specs, please. You should have realized this was a necessity in any new computer announcement...

Oooh. Kick ass. :-) Any idea of the video card and RAM?

And, the question I have no right to ask: how much did it cost?

(See, I'm contemplating a laptop, myself...)

The video device is an Intel mobile chipset specially designed for laptops. It's got some fancy "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator" thing. I believe the VRAM is 256 MB, but I can't find it on my system configuration.

Oh, and $1350. But that's once the rebate checks arrive.
