#1345: Posting from Seiren

That's right--the laptop is out of its box, plugged in, connected to the Internet, and it's a thing of beauty!

Since this machine has Vista Home Premium on it, I get the full Vista Aero experience. This machine has the same score as my desktop--3.4--when it comes to "Windows Experience". The desktop is limited by its video card; I haven't checked to see what limits this one.

So far I'm liking the keyboard. The editing keys are a bit weird but it seems easy to type on.

I've deleted a bunch of useless software and I think I'm finally to the point that I can start adding stuff (like Word). I already installed Firefox, WinAmp, and the K-Lite Codec pack. I'm going to have to do something about CD/DVD authoring software since I deleted Roxiocrap first thing, but I have a copy of a program that should do nicely.

And in keeping with the naming of computers after anime worlds, this one's been named Seiren after the world from which Miharu came in Girls Bravo. (The mythical "planet of hot women", too, actually.)

I haven't even gotten a good look at all the ports and stuff on it, either. I've got a lot of fiddling to do, yet. But man, it's cool.

It's got VGA, S-VHS, and HDMI outputs. It's got built-in wireless networking. 4 USB ports. All the LEDs are blue, giving it a futuristic look--well, if it were 2004, maybe. But it's f-ing cool and I like it.

There's a Bluetooth icon under one of the LEDs. I'm pretty sure this thing doesn't have a Bluetooth adaptor in it.

And the battery is charging! Whee!!!

    Arrival was on UotsSuubs, so over the course of a few days I watched it while eating lunch. I still love it; you do not often see hard science…
