Hey hey hey! I am typing this wirelessly from my brand new laptop! I got it open box from Circuit City, woo! It is a Toshiba Satellite and I am enjoying it so far. I got linux up and running ala VM Ware and it is running XP pro as the main OS (I know I know, but linux just isnt a great OS for multimedia on a lapotp without too much hair pulling and people killing). The speakers on this thing are pretty impressive, in that they are actually worth using...they kind of stick up under the screen and are kinda big. I justified this purchase since I will be doing programming regularly with the castersguild guys. It is nice to have a mobile desktop!!
