Okay. I officially welcomed my new laptop into the family today by posing for a new gay geek picture with it.
After a month of tweaking the computer and figuring out how I wanted to use it, I believe I have everything working the way I want it to and it didnâ€™t cost me an arm and a leg to do so. The only thing thatâ€™s not quite where I want it to be yet is recording video using my webcam, but thatâ€™s why I have the small selection of mini video cameras laying around the house.
And yes, Iâ€™m running Windows 7 Ultimate. The latest incarnation of Ubuntu Linux is wonderful, but itâ€™s not quite where it needs to be to be a mainstream desktop environment. As I was telling my friend Matt on the phone earlier today, I work on computers all day long for a living and I love every moment of it. However, when I come home I want to enjoy my computer, not struggle with getting it work and I want it to be a rather affordable experience. I believe the my new Lenovo laptop, which has top of the line specs, was the most sensible way of achieving that goal.
And for the curious, I still love my iMac that runs my recording studio.
