So, I done bought me a new laptop. It’ll be a bit of a struggle to afford, but I do need a new one; my beloved old Sony C1XD has served me well for the last five years but it’s really just too slow to use seriously any more. I considered upgrading the RAM and hard disk on it and getting a new battery, but by the time I do that, I may as well get a new system. The new laptop will actually be faster than my current desktop, so I’ll use it as my main system, give this desktop to my partner, and use his old desktop as a dedicated server. My old laptop is now for sale; it’s a fantastic system, I still love the form factor and the build quality, just a bit too slow to use as a main system or even a main laptop any more. I know there’s a lot of Picturebook enthusiasts out there, though, so I should get a decent price for it.
