I’ve decided that I totally hate Netbooks. This unit is as decked out as you can get it. Big optional hard drive for storage. Lots of RAMs running around. In fact with RAM and HD space, it’s actually just as good as my late Laptop… but that’s where the good points end. The wireless antenna sucks and gives crap for signal strength, even when within feet of a wireless access point. But that’s fine, I can live with that. But what really sucks the most is the little anemic processor.
When I open up one of my books to work on them…. oh… say it’s the one that my publisher is waiting for me to finish editing… I make a change in the document… and everything I type or whatnot takes 5 to 30 seconds to actually change. It’s fine when the document is small, say under 150KB. But when it grows, everything bogs down. Sure, it’s a big hefty book I’ve got going on, but it still. I’d like to actually be able to hammer the wrinkles out and get it to print. That would be nice.
It’s almost June now. Browning will have that X-Bolt rifle to me soon. And then I’ll get a decent machine that I can write, edit, and do more videos on. Hopefully by then, we’ll actually be in warm weather too. I’m looking up at fresh snow in the mountains above Ogre Ranch.
