    I know what you mean. I've always felt that laptops are just for some work when you don't have access to the mian machine.
    I guess size looks like matters. Laptops and desktops are not designed to give the same feeling. Oh well, congrats on the laptop though, I dunno if I should get a low-spec one to keep using Linux as I'm gonna be away from the computer that's got one. Speaking of which, I'm actually writing from WinXP
    Just wait till I get wine working...

    thats a pretty sweet machine...I'm envious my laptop is about 2 years old now (compaq 1700 P3 1GHz) but it is starting to annoy me...

    how much did it cost?

    some entropy with that sink? entropysink.com

    Thats why they should make laptops as huge and "robust" as desktops! So that some people can still feal the "robustness" of their lapi.

    Which would defeat the object of having a laptop, but all right.
