shopping for a 10"-11" laptop

the market became too granular!

what i need:

  • faster CPU than the stock Atom
  • Bluetooth

what would be nice

  • ubuntu compatibility + some form of 3D accel (compiz)
  • fit in the 10″ netbook bag i bought a month ago+fit w/o bag in the front pocket of my backpack

$370 eeepc 1015PEM-PU17
$30 2GB DDR3
$0 case
cheap, fast CPU (atom dual core), new model, long battery (8-10 hours actual time) ubuntu works, not sure about standby mode. can’t recycle my eeepc’s 2GB DDR2. i don’t like the feeling of doing a tiny minor upgrade from the eeepc 901 which I purchased at a higher price 2 years ago. ii’s 10″

$420 Aspire 1410 (the $320 deal is GONE!). US version of 1810T, almost same
$15 bluetooth module
$0 2GB DDR2 (from old eeepc 901)
$20 case
cheap, HDMI out, even faster CPU (Intel ULV), ubuntu tested. will the bluetooth mod work? will it get detected?

$550 used Aspire 1810T (the $500 price is GONE!) European first version, 1410 equivalent
$20 case
if it’s used, will the HDD or batteries suffer? is a used laptop at $550 worth it these days? also released on early-mid 2009. may be hard to find parts if anything breaks

$700 Aspire 1830T-3721
(the 3927 model selling for $600 doesn’t have BT+$20 BT module)
really good computer, at really high price. BT is not detected on ubuntu

after the hard drive dies, (or if it turns out to be too slow), I plan on replacing the hard drive with a SSD. The cheapest one out there seems to be:
+$110 60GB SSD OCZ Vertex 2
I missed Crucial’s $64 64GB M225 SSD post thanksgiving sale :(

Nice options out there:

I faxed a USPS support request on 9/14 and they warned me with “3-5 day turnaround”. ok fine, i’ll wait. after weeks of calling, i’m through with the specialist who wants me to send everything over again. that’s fine. just know that i sent it 3 weeks ago. maybe you meant 3-5 week turnaround?

Don’t buy into this scheme. It’s a scam.

Dear Yongho Kim,

I am a developer with a project supported by the Los Angeles Housing Department and the City Counsel and the Mayor of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Corporation for Supportive Housing for low income to facilitate economic integration of single people, couples and families in temporary or long term situation called “The Hundred’s”, consisting of an apartment building with basic compact units (sofa bed, kitchen counter, working desk, closet, toilet and shower) with windows and balcony at very low rent price, in an extremely good spectrum, allowing the occupants to resources themselves in a safe environment while reorganizing their lives for a stable or better future in your area.

I need from you all information regarding your rent programs, I know you provide a certain amount of the rent for the people on the GR program, varying on each cases. If you can provide me more detailed information it would help us determine a realistic price range needed for existing cases.

The second request I am asking is, the information on the number of single people on the program, just as the number of couples and families as well if you can, or even better if it is disclosed in your annual report I would be more than glade to review it.

These informations are just to help determine the number of housing needed for single, couples and families which represent the three different categories of rooms and apartments dedicated to suite each personal case status of low income people.

Thanks in advance.

i dreamt there were zombies attacking us…

i dreamt there were zombies attacking us. it’s strange because this night i was well equipped, with both a heater running and the electric mat. so no cold air induced nightmares were supposed to pop up. well the zombies were attacking us, and at some point me and some other people had the role of a rescue team, so we smashed into the school office style room shooting guns, and killed some of the zombies. they were so fast, they were kind of like velociraptors from jurassic park. and slowly they morphed into them over time. there was a metallic cabinet on the right corner. it was semi-open. some of the team crew were approaching it, and i told them to hold off, and opened it from a distance by kicking the door. there was a strange saliva hanging inside the cabinet. then the zombiraptor dropped down from a space above that wasn’t visible from outside the cabinet, and assaulted a civilian to my left. i couldn’t shoot at it, as it was too close, and grabbed a hammer and hit the zombieraptor in the head while it was desecrating the civilian live. i managed to kill the zombieraptor but i think one of the last few blows also killed the civilian, as its head was right behind the zombieraptor’s hocico. then i woke up. phew, scary.

#nptech #n2la ok folks, most online tools are designed to be self-teachable. if all those on-the-site pointers and #RTFM are insufficient and you need a “training” before moving a finger on an online tool, maybe you just aren’t smart enough.
