About 2 or 3 weeks ago we took another plunge. I dove into a new laptop for all the varied projects that come our way. All I can say is Wow, comparing the cost and performance of this latest laptop to my netbook or the big laptop I purchased 5 years ago. I’ve named this new HP DV7 laptop, MonsterLT with it’s 17″ LED screen.
The last PCs I got before this were the 2 netbooks that work well in the field. Especially when you need something that boots up fast and has long battery life. It turned out that most of my work was on other computers, so using a netbook + large screen + a full size keyboard and mouse was good enough for 90% of my work.
