One of the driving forces behind the "Sumocat Seeks Sponsorship" (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/11/sss-sumocat-seeks-sponsorship.html) campaign is the need for a new Notebook (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/10/time-to-redefine-term-notebook.html) (that's Tablet PC for you non-converts), or more accurately, a need to pay off the one I just got, as well as the tech I will test and use in the future.

Yes, since losing the PC card slot (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/05/gravity-1-pc-card-slot-0.html) and wearing down the battery (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/10/batterys-hashed.html) in my trusty Electrovaya Scribbler SC500 (http://www.electrovaya.com/product/sc500.html), I felt an urgent need to upgrade. And upgrade I did to a Toshiba Satellite R25 (http://tinyurl.com/y3zpaf), just as I had indicated in previous posts. But did I go with a Core Duo processor or spend the extra $200 for a Core 2 Duo? The surprising answer will be revealed after I finish my photoshoot. But if you need to know this moment, I did leave an Easter Egg link in a previous post. Hee hee ;)

  1. Dude, 14.1" screen. Nice. Very nice. I'm glad somebody else sees the light of having a nice, big'ol screen to work on. And hell, that's a helluva'n upgrade. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous :P

  2. Different sizes for different purposes. Digital whiteboard, note-taking, ink blogging, my usage is more on the ink side of the form factor than the mobile side. If I was running around more, more mobile than nomadic, I'd prefer a smaller device. Let me tell you, between the size and convertible screen, it is considerably more cumbersome than my little Scribbler. Well-balanced though. Haven't been uncomfortable with the weight yet.
