New Laptop

I've got a laptop! A friend of mine was able to get me a refurbished IBM Thinkpad T23 for £175 which was quite a good bargain.

I must admit that I don't need a laptop at this time but at that price I couldn't really say no.

Its basic specs are PIII 1.133Mhz processor, 768MB Ram, 40gig Hard-drive, 14.1" screen, and it also came with a docking station.

I spent Sunday installing XP on it along with various other programmes and just getting to grips with it and checking out what it can do.

I've also ordered a wireless modem/router so that I'll be free to use the internet around the house. This should hopefully come tomorrow so next blog I may be using the laptop instead of the desktop.

Congratulations on your new laptop!

I'll try to make up that CD sometime this week and mail it out to you.
