My new laptop arrived today: an ultraportable Thinkpad X60. The laptop is about half the size, and weight,Â of my old notebook.
The notebook came preinstalled with Windows XP and dozens of apps that I would never use. So, without much hesitation, I did a clean install of Vista.Â I was quite worried about whether the new notebook would still work after the install. Video, network, bluetooth, power management, fingerprint scanner. So many drivers.
The Vista install went off without a hitch. Everything works fine and the Vista environment is so much nicer than XP. And although I have been a hardcore Firefox user on XP, IÂ quite likeÂ IE7 on Vista.
The new notebook is really cool and it will be much easier to carry around on the train and in my other travels.
