Laptop replacement

Posted by Thoughts and Ramblings on Monday, November 21, 2005

One way or another, I am going to replace this laptop. I have decided that $400 is not worth it to fix such an old computer. The question remains, should I replace it with an iBook, or go with the more expensive powerbook. The only reason to go with the powerbook is the bigger screen (got used to a 15" screen), but the iBook has nearly the same resolution as my current laptop (1024x768 vs. 1152x768). The other minor issues of note is the iBook can only video mirror (without a hack), and it doesn’t have gigabit ethernet. Is that worth $600 difference to me? I am holding out hope that I can get one of my dad’s old laptops working and then not have to replace it until the intel ones are out.

I also worked on updating the server some today. The old drive in it seems to have failed before we could get some data off it. Oh well, not a terrible loss, but I still would like to get it all back if I can.

At least I enjoyed the volleyball game today. We beat Tech in the first three games.
