my laptop, in hindsight

  1. Before I started school I had questions about needing a laptop or a pda and what was important?
    So I got a laptop and I used it all year, everyday. I wanted a dell and I got all the goodies stuff. its the inspiron 8500, theres an 8600 now I think.
    anyway. today I was thinking. Its huge, too big and bulky really.
    In hindsight I would have gotten somthing smaller.
    havn't gotten the pda yet but will soon to help keep stats in clinical.

    Ditto that thought.

    An apple fits fine in a windows world.

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite. It's fine, works well, but it can be a lot to lug around.
    Think small and light if you are going to be toting this thing around with you.

    I recently purchased a Macintosh powerbook G4. Nice size, lots of power. LOVE IT!! (Long time Mac user). For those of you that are Mac illiterate...DO NOT BE AFFRAID! Remember, Mac was the pioneer of "point and click", they are the easiest computers to use!!! Highly recommended!

    No, I'm not a teacher. I just grew up using Macs.

    I have a casio speak and spell! It is great for clinicals. I believe that the person the other day asking how to spell "basciculations" or "vasciculations" could use it. I like my compaq but it is to noisy in class. The regular fan makes enough noise not to mention when the second fan kicks in. When it does I see several students reaching for their seatbelts awaiting departure. I would like a MAC. becouse a like to edit movies, however I to am mac. illiterate. I want to upgrade my speak and spell for clinicals. Does anyone have suggestions for good PDA's?
