New gear, part 2
Last week, while I was in Redmond for the 2010 MVP Summit, I also had the chance to visit some computer stores in the neighborhood. After visiting both the Best Buy and RadioShack in Bellevue, I decided to take the advice a couple of fellow-MVPs and Softies gave me and visit Fry’s in Renton on Saturday.
While I intended to look for a netbook (which would have been my 2009 Christmas present) I quickly came across the Lenovo S10-3t, a 10,1” tablet with netbook specifications. (you know, Intel Atom N450, 1GB RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium)
Unfortunately, while Fry’s had a demo model available, they did not have one to sell…
They did however have a couple of HP tablets for sale. I didn’t go for any of the (refurbished) HP TouchSmart Tx2 tablets, but got hooked by HPs TouchSmart Tm2t tablet.
The specs of this productivity tool for my personal use:
- Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CULV 1,3GHz
- 12,1” WXGA (1280x800) LED BrightView MutliTouch display
- 4096 MB DDR3 RAM
- 320 GB 7200rpm hard disk with free fall sensor
- D-SUB and HDMI 1.3b out
- Integrated webcam
- Integrated Fingerprint reader
- 802.11a/b/g/n wireless networking
- 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
- 5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader
- Aluminium chassis (with engraved illustration)
A nice consumer-grade companion to my work Dell Latitude E6500 and since it has a lovely flower motive on the cover, I think the wife will be eager to use it, too!
