No More Excuses

Vero Beach
27 39.51 N 080 22.27

Well, all of our packages have come.  The new computer is up and running just fine.   We're going out to dinner tonight on another boat, but most of our friends have left already.   We're running out of excuses why we have to stay in Vero, so I guess we'll have to leave.   Tuesday sounds like the best day to leave weather wise.

This new computer is sweet.  After a snafu with the first computer, Best Buy exchanged it for a new one without argument.  Kudos Best Buy for good customer service.  

My new computer is a Samsung notebook sized PC.  Here's what I like about it.

  • The keyboard, although small, is crisp and has a good feel.  I can type full speed on it.
  • It has an instant on feature.  Just open the cover and presto, the screen is lit and the computer resumes where it was.  No waiting for reboot or for long hibernates.  It seems like I've wasted a good fraction of my life waiting for computers to start up. No more.
  • The battery lasts 5 hours.  That's great.
  • My previous laptop was very big and very heavy, this one is the opposite.
The only down side I see is that the screen has fewer pixels than my old computer so the text images are coarser.
