I do need something else to type on. It doesn't need to be fancy. I have a downstairs computer that I do my graphics work on. So my upstairs laptop just needs to have the following:
- A text editor
- A web browser
- An e-mail client
I might actually go check out a tablet PC or something. I'm also curious about the ipads, but only for the new/swanky factor. In all truth I'll probably get something used. I was looking at craigslist today at dell laptops, googling around to see which models are best at running ubuntu.
The funny thing about this is that I'm ready to put my 2005 laptop to rest but I'm never going to let go of my 2001 desktop, aka Spacefem The Computer, the one with the badass light kit and ringed planet cutout. See icon. I know the 900 MHZ AMD processor leaves something to be desired but so many parts of it just seem like such a good idea still, plus I'm so proud of it because I put so much time and research into it. That was back when I had some things about hardware still in my head. That was a long time ago.
