A new notebook...

After carrying around my notebook with all my books and notes I finally considered to buy an ultraportable model: a Dell Latitude D430.

My specific model is configured as follows:
  • Intel U7600 Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Core 2 Duo
  • 2GB DDR2 533MHz SDRAM (1 x 1GB + 1GB integrated)
  • 12.1" WXGA Display (1280 x 800)
  • 80GB Toshiba 5200RPM 1.8'' HDD (I'll move to a SSD soon ;-))
  • MediaBase 8x DVD+/-RW Drive - W Euro
  • Intel 4965AGN wireless card
  • FreeDOS inside! Woo-hoo!!! (H.Simpson accent) no Microcrap included! :-) just reinstalled with Ubuntu 7.10.
And now I can finally build x86_64 SystemImager packages at home (or better everywhere) and play with Xen and a processor with Intel VT extensions!
