New technology

Today I have me some new technology.

For a while I've been looking for a replacement for my old laptop. Last week I managed to clear most of my credit card bill so I decided it was about time that I had a serious look at what was available. Not only did I find something that I could afford but it's got a lot more cool features than my old laptop.

I decided to go with a TC1100 tablet. It does all that I need it to do (mainly word processing and checking emails) plus it's a whole lot lighter than my old laptop. It's got no cd drive built in to the main part but it came with a docking station that has the cd drive in it and the ability to connect it to a larger monitor. The tablet it's self is obviously touch screen and swivels to the side to reveal a decent sized keyboard. While using the touch-screen I can actually hand write straight onto the screen and have it covert it into text. I'm really looking forward to using that feature at tutorials.

But this blog isn't just about a new bit of equipment, oh no. this new bit of equipment will be used for 2 purposes. For my study to give me something portable that I can take and store notes on as well as writing essays. And for my writing which I'm slowly getting back into. So expect some new excerpts and this appearing over the next while as I get myself back into the swing of writing.
