Ain't technology grand?

Today I ordered a new laptop (IdeaPad) to replace my beloved and reliable, but now frustratingly slow, 5 year old ThinkPad. Some numbers in comparison:
  • RAM memory: 8 times more (500 MB to 4 GB)
  • hard drive memory: 10 times more
  • battery life: 25% longer
  • screen size: 10% larger
  • weight: 25% lighter
  • cost: 20% LESS expensive

Amazing. Once I have blazing speed and deep memory, I wonder if I'll write novels faster? Or blog more often? Time will tell.

  1. Cool, Keith. I'll be getting a laptop one of these days too. Right now, I'm sharing my husband's desktop, since my desktop died.
