New Toy

So...yesterday my almost four year old Asus netbook decided to turn into a brick. A long story that involved an attempt to boot from a USB stick (I didn't even try to INSTALL a new OS. Apparently I'm just that klutzy some days).

So now I have a new Acer chromebook. Bigger screen, lighter, even faster boot time and nicer design. I haven't played enough with it yet to know how I really feel about the Chrome OS, but it's what tends to come on lightweights these days. (Ultra lightweights really got killed by the tablet market).

Now, does anyone know if the nice lady who sells laptop decals will be at this year's Balticon. There's this huge expanse of white on the lid and I can't stand it ;).
