Lilliputing

So my desktop went kerplotz this past Sunday; the lousy Gateway junkheap didn’t even make it three years.  I’m trying to figure out what to get next.  I’m leaning toward Mac, but I’ll have to save up a few paychecks to float the cost.  I could get another Windows machine (and still might) but for the time being, I’m getting by with a little help from my netbook.

I must say, I’m pretty impressed with my HP Mini 1000 so far.  It gets a little pokey every so often because of the slow SSD drive, but it gets the job done.  I kicked up the memory to 2GB and the storage to 8GB.  Granted, I’m not certain I’m going to need all that, but its nice to know its there.  🙂

I took it to my parents’ house for Easter, and everyone was quite impressed.  I used my T-Mobile Dash to connect it to the tubes (folks are on dial-up, gak) and it worked quite well.  No more being “off the grid” for me or using my brother’s old crappy PC.

Its somewhat fortuitous that I have my netbook to tide me over until I get a new desktop…otherwise I may have done something CRAZY like put an iMac on my Mastercard.

Hmmm.
