New Laptop
« on: July 07, 2010, 06:03:32 PM »
Just got a new laptop yesterday, my old one died.  This new beast is very sexy.  After I grumbled my way
through the windows 7 installation, and then deleted all the commercial and "Brand" crap, I repartitioned the
drive and installed Linux Mint 9.  I'm still configuring and adding packages.

I'm not really an Apple person.  Sure they have good stuff, but I can't afford to even look at Apple products with my
limited income.  My Acer, was $350 online sale, + $80 memory upgrade to max it at 4G.  I kept windows on so I can dual boot,
so far the wireless only works with Win 7, but I'm close to figuring out how to get it running in Linux.
