My New Computer


In my continuing quest to own the coolest, smallest laptop I purchased a new Fujitsu P1510D Lifebook.  It arrived today so I'll have the weekend to spend playing around with it.


It's pretty cool but there are a couple of things I'm not super happy about:



  • The pointing device is one of those eraser-sized nubs that sits in the middle of the keyboard.

  • The touchscreen is pressure sensitive instead of electromagnetic like most other Tablet PCs.  It does a pretty good job of only responding to the stylus but every once in a while, pressure from my hand can grab the cursor.  Not the best if you're writing...

I suppose I'll learn to live with those limitations.  So far everything else about the machine is very cool.

    Sounds very cool, but how would it withstand the Winters of Chicago?

    P.S. Ever visit?

    Keith,

    How are you doing? And how is Chicago? (I’m assuming you’re reporting from Chi-town.)

    If so, how do you withstand the winters of Chicago? 🙂

    I do get back there every other year or so. And, come to think about it, I was there a couple of years ago and the temperature was about 65 degrees on New Years Day. That wasn’t too bad…
