Check out my sleek, stylish new carbon fiber...

...notebook computer?!!

I just received the new notebook I'd ordered a few days ago. I popped open the box, and there it was - complete with a mostly carbon fiber lid! I had no idea.

I ordered the Acer Travelmate 8204WLMi, mostly because the Acer 8000 I've had for the last couple of years has been flawless. I just wanted a bigger hard drive, more RAM, and some other upgraded features.

This thing is awesome:
  • Intel Duo 2.0 GHz processor
  • 15.4" wide screen monitor
  • 120 GB HD
  • DVD-Super Multi double layer
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN
  • Bluetooth
  • Built-in webcam
...and carbon fiber!

Maybe I'll put some HRC stickers on it or something.

You know, I guess some people actually have Windows based hardware and never get a virus. I manage several hundreds that have never had a single case of a virus. Every case of a virus that any of my clients have experienced is because someone did something extremely stupid.

As far as any systems I work with, a virus is the exception, not the norm.

and your girlfriend too.

I haven't had antivirus on my personal PC for years. For me, it's a waste of money.

it's only a waste of money if you use one you gotta pay for. There are excellent home antivirus packages out there you can get for free and they even stay updated..

True...however I also prefer to not have a virus scanner hog up system resources and slow my computer down unnecessarily.
