New Laptop is on the way… yeah!


This week I’ve started working with my new company. I got to see the spec for the new laptop that they ordered for me… and it is sweet! You have to understand, I was *about* to do my hardware refresh when I left Microsoft… So I wasn’t using a Dual Core or anything like that when I left. The laptop that I had at Microsoft was nice (2ghz, 2GB RAM, etc…), but since I left I’ve been getting by with my old PIII 800mhz home laptop… It’s very old and painful to use. Every job that I’ve had for the last several years I’ve been supplied with decent hardware… so my personal laptop has pretty much become obsolete. Here are the specs that were ordered:

  • Intel® Core™ 2 Duo (2.00GHz)
  • 17 inch UltraSharp™ Wide Screen UXGA Display
  • 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM
  • 256MB ATI MOBILITY Graphics Card
  •  100GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive
  • Etc
  • Etc
  • Etc

In the words of Tim the Tool Man Taylor… Ahr, ahr, arh… This is set to arrive around just after Feb 11th… if it arrives a *little* early, then it will be like a nice birthday present! Yah!
