Well - my house feels completely different this morning.....
« on: September 01, 2013, 11:07:45 am »
... well the kitchen living room anyway.  For the first time (apart from the occasional breakdown) in nearly 20 years I haven't switched a PC on and I really hadnt realised how noisy the fan on them was.  The new laptop even when working and fan going full speed is really very quiet - and I only have to shut the lid to turn it off.  And if I forget and leave it unattended it switches itself off  ;D


One touch of the button or pad and it comes alive again.  I love it already


The mouse pad on these is either not very good or takes some getting used to but I have a superdooper raido mouse on order, which I can hardly wait to get


So far the Sony Vaio is getting the thumbs up.  I will keep you informed

Hey - I'm just trying out my new laptop, too! I agree on the noise; my old PC sounds as if the hamster is getting ratty once it's been running for a while...

Once I get "on the road"  I assume I will need some sort of travelling case to keep it safe in the back of the "bus"


Any recommendations?

A proper laptop case with pockets for peripherals will not cost much and yes would be useful when you start your new nomadic life.  It presumably would be in a cupboard while you are travelling but protection would be useful too

Look forward to hearing how you get on, mine is stuck together with tape, but not sure how long it will last.

I prefer a mouse to the flattened hedgehog on my laptop.

Bionic - we just got some Ipods so that we can Facetime and message each other whilst she is in hospital. Fantastic and we can download so many aps and use the internet via local WIFI.

Sue, the first thing I did was get a mouse for my laptop, I couldn't be doing with the silly pad thingy either. Don't forget you have a bolt-hole here when you get to NE Scotland :)
