The new laptop has arrived


My new laptop for work
Originally uploaded by Matt Stratton.

My laptop came today. Tomorrow I will be turning it over to a desktop tech to put the corporate image on it, but tonight I putzed around with it first.

Experimented with VMware – installed a few virtual machines. This machine actually has enough horsepower that I could install a few small instances of other OS’s, just for fun. This could serve very useful in the future for testing.

Not pictured is the 17″ flat panel monitor that I also got for a secondary display, which is an upgrade from the 15″ I’d been using.

And I love having the wifi built-in. I was always bending the part of my PCMCIA wifi card that stuck out of the side of the computer. No good.
