Yesterday, after UPS and customs kept delaying my new laptop, it finally came!
This one's a ThinkPad R51e, model 1843-35U. The first thing I did to it was upgrade the RAM, FWIW. Not even turn it on. Specs are:
- CPU: Celeron M 360J, 1.4GHz, 1MB L2 cache
- RAM: 768MB PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM
- HDD: 40GB 5400RPM PATA
- Optical: UltraBay Enhanced CD-RW/DVD combo
- LCD: 14.1" XGA TFT
- Chipset: ATI Mobility Radeon 200M, Intel edition
- GPU: Integrated MR 200M
- WiFi: ThinkPad (read: Atheros) B/G
Anyway, it's pretty nice. Framerates in games, are, shall I say "greatly improved"?
As for the phone... my new phone is a Sanyo SCP-8300. My previous phone, a Nokia 6225, decided that it wasn't going to make or recieve calls, but it was still attaching to the network. So, time to get a new phone.
This new one has a few nice features. First, MIDP 2.0 support. Did I mention that the hifi version of Opera Mini is NICE?
Second, a flash. So, I can take almost usable pics at night.
Finally, a camcorder. Not that I have that option on my plan...
The only problem is, it puts a lot more JPEG artifacts in the picture, so quality is reduced. (FWIW, that laptop pic was taken with that phone.)
