my new weapon of choice ;)
Posted By: distorted_vision, 02-05-2008, 04:34 AM

hey guys,. well. i invested in a new laptop setup and i thought i would post up a pic.. its a tiny lil asus, but i have 2 gig ram, 8gig internal flash memory, a decent processor and its running linux. which is fantastic for me, as im a bit of a linux junkie.also, i have an external 120gig HD so thats more than enough for out on the road. also i invested in a spare batterie (4 cell).. so all up i have about 7.5 hours worth to work with, which is pretty awesome . apart from that, i bought a snazzy case and also a laptop cooling board with 2 big fans underneath to move the air around a bit more and to keep the temperature down.. so far it has worked awesome, so a solid investment!
i bought it for when im on the road taking pics, so i can dump the images onto it, view them and edit them and clear the card.. also, i can use my wireless net with it and send pic emails to friends and family when i am out and about also, pics to the newspaper ... i sparked a bit of a casual deal with a local newspaper.. street photography.. ill fill you guys in a bit more very soon

but yeh,, i pretty much love technology and yeh, i just wanted to show you guys my lil set up and i thought this pic was pretty kool.. oh yeh, ps- thats my bed! hah!

That is pretty cool, is it one of those eeepc machines?

I myself run a HP 2510p ultraportable with Linux.
1.3kg, 12" widescreen and build in 3G/HSDPA cell phone modem. (3.6MBit just about anywhere and 7.2Mbit a few places).
It's a bit larger but still easy to carry around.

yeh, indeed mate.. i upgraded the internals a bit tho.. it seemed like a good lil investment for me.. as i didnt need to spend the world on it.. however, it ended up being pretty damn well specked out after i finished with it

It is quite a coincidence that my laptop just broke yesterday!

That looks nice and I am addicted to Asus as well. Now hunting down for a new laptop

Enjoy your new weapon of choice

nice setup Is that thing really small? (the big case around it makes it look miniature...)
I should take a pic of my rig one of these days (a self-built desktop box) - but it's got an asus mb at least.

bummer about your laptop James.
