First it works, then it doesn’t.  One day it’ll boot, the next it won’t.  This laptop has so far been quite an adventure.  Even when it does boot, there’s this nearly undefinable feel to it that tells me that it’s days are numbered and that every time it boots up or performs something that I want it to do, it’s life expectancy is decremented.

Now that I have finally managed to recover the last bit of data from it’s hard drive that I had wanted to preserve the pressure is finally off and I don’t have to feel like I’m in a race against time, I can concentrate on the obvious permanent solution to my laptop issues, replacement.

samsung notebookcomputerTo that end I’ve spent a good deal of time browsing sale pages, looking for the ideal replacement computer.

One good possibility is the Samsung NC10 netbook.  It’s equipped with the relatively new Intel Atom processor, has a healthy 160 gigabytes of hard drive and a feature that I like is it’s battery life.  This sucker’s actually claiming up to 8 hours of battery life!

I’m not 100% sure about having a display that’s only 10.2 inches after getting used to my Desktop’s 17inch CRT but I’m thinking that I can adapt to using it for portable use.  Portable computing being the key factor.  It’s the kind of thing that would allow me to always have a computer handy for those times when I either have a few moments to work on a project or run across something that just begs to be written about but all too often gets forgotten or over-ridden by more immediately pressing concerns before I get a chance to do something about it.
