Alright, I'm buying a netbook, and I get to spend about CDN$425 on it (US$400). What have you guys bought, what do you like and what do you not like? I'm partial to Lenovo (the whole line of laptops in general) and Dell. I don't know why I'm partial to Dell as I usually avoid that maker, although I recall hearing good things about the Mini 10.

Or should I just put more money and get a real laptop? I already have a work laptop, a Lenovo X61, which is pretty decent except for the shitty screen. Hmm. Netbook, here I come.

*** ETA: This will run Windows 7. However, if it's hackintosh-able, that would be a bonus, as I want to pull one of these off as an experiment.

A lost interview with ENIAC co-inventor J. Presper Eckert:

What was the first thing you did with ENIAC?

It was designed to calculate trajectory tables, but it came too late to really help with the war effort. The first real use was Edward Teller using ENIAC to do calculations for the hydrogen bomb.


Fucking hell.
