My New Toy

I'm typing this from my new toy: a Dell mini, 8.9", with a 16 GB solid-state drive and Ubuntu Linux. It is really cute and little!

I got it as an early birthday present, so that I could have a computer to take along on our trip next month. It is so small and so light (about 2.5 lbs) that it will be easy to just toss it in a bag and take it with us.

The only problem is that some of the keys have been moved, so, for example, the apostrophe is down a row and I keep pressing enter rather than apostrophe. No doubt it will take some getting used to.

This reminds me of the Dell brick that I carried around as an undergrad. It is pretty amazing that your new toy is 4 times lighter!
