After three years of only using Windows machines at work, I once again have a Wintel box on my desk. I had grown frustrated with the issue my two towers were having with the development software I wanted to run. While still good computers they are now a little long in the tooth. The newer one is 5 years old, and the older one almost 7.
So I saved my money and got a new ThinkPad Z60m notebook computer. Two things really sold me on this particular machine, the widescreen (and a nice 1680x1050 resolution) and the Friends and Family discount I got through a work mate employed by IBM. (Thanks CN!)
This post also marks some thing new for zanshin.net - pictures on Flickr. Check out the out of box experience.
