I Shiver With Antici... Pation

I’ve written before about lusting after a portable computer. I’ve finally taken the advice of a commenter on the latter entry: last week, I ordered the tiny Fujitsu P1510D after discovering the current price for a refurbished model, and that it works pretty well with Linux.

Naturally, Fujitsu immediately announced its successor, the P70T/V. But I’m not sorry — I wouldn’t have minded the energy savings the Core Solo will probably offer, but that machine will continue to be a lot more expensive, and, for now, it’s a mystery how well Linux would run on it.

It was supposed to arrive today, but there was a delivery screw-up. Should be here tomorrow. You may be able to hear my squeals of glee from where you are.
