Better computer?

There is no such thing as a better computer... they all suck. ;)

However, this creates lots of careers for folks like me :D

Yeah.......this is no fun. What are the chances jcs will be habiting this thread. CCM just pushing us off to pro-Bush sites.

This thread was born with an expiration date. Just like your average Windows box.

Yeah the Lisa was nice. When the mac's arrived I had a copy of Lisa Works (I think that was the name) to simulate the old gal.

I'll let you play with your WANG.

How's the TV?
Waiting...
HD cable comes tomorrow as do long cables to connect it to the AV stack that's hidden away.
Bought a new DVD player that upscales in the digital domain and puts out an HDMI signal... Now I just need to find the $$$ for a 33ft HDMI cable...!
No Monster cables for me, not at the start anyway..!

It was worth a try, anyway. :)

In a rare PC defending moment, allow me to say that Sony's industrial design is not that bad. Certainly not up to Apples, but it's pretty darn good for a mass-market PC. I've got one of the Z-series laptops, which I don't think they make any more. It's not offensive. :) A little schizophrenic on where they decided to place things like ports, but I'm not ashamed to carry it around. The only negative about it is that they used cheap paint / plastic for the button below the trackpad. It started to flake, looking like it was a protective cover starting to come off. So, I tried to pull the protective cover off, but, there was no protective plastic, it was paint. So, now, the button is mostly white instead of silver.

Sony's new, super thin laptop looks great in pictures. But, they pulled a ton of stuff out of it to make it that thin.
