Core-Duo madness!

By Sparky | April 19, 2006

Today during my lunch break (or is that breakfast on a day when I start as late as I did) I went to go get my new laptop for work. I’m an independent contractor so I have to bring my own equipment rather than have the company provide it. I ended up settling on a Toshiba Satellite Core-Duo and I have to say – I’m impressed.

It’s no secret that Windows is no longer my OS of choice, but I figure if I’m going to have to run it I might as well run it on a 1.66Gz Dual Core machine with 2Gb of RAM – the thing screams! It’s got an integrated graphics chipset so it’s not going to be anywhere near the quality you would want for gaming, but it still should be a pretty fun little laptop. I wish it was slightly smaller, but it’s at least portable enough that I can cart it around to meetings without getting a hernia.

Oh Macbook Pro – how I yearn for thee!
