But you know what I really don't believe? That my cellphone will be working almost like normal, that I'll be able to do email and surf the web all over the place. Eleven years ago I went to the US at just this time and had to pretend to be a new student all over the country to get internet access. Six years ago I'd just come back from there and was still astounded at the way that my friends had all grown cell phones while I was away. (What time does is pass, get over it Susan).

Oh, and we're talking about getting a new laptop while we're there. What would be cool? I like this 5 year old Sony Vaio except that it's very very very slow these days. Sean fancies a MacBook Pro.

I want one of those too. Don't think I'll ever actually get one though. Far too expensive. :)

I had a Powerbook 100 and I loved it until it died a metal-on-metal screechingly hardcore death taking the third of my MA thesis that I'd written with it. We've had an iBook at Playcentre but I've found it very big and clumsy compared to the Vaio. I haven't got to grips with the rewritten System yet, but that would come fast enough, it's just I'd prefer a computer I can fit in a large handbag. I dunno, we usually end up trying to compromise and getting something neither of us is very fond of. If we get his first choice this time he might get my pda to synch and then it could have a keyboard and ....

Back when we had enough time to set up electronic systems we couldn't afford all the toys. Now we have money but not time.

I'm thinking of getting a new notebook soon too.

Instead of one MacBook pro (which are overpriced for what you actually get) how about his'n'hers MacBooks? You could get one white and one black.

There's nothing more irritating than waiting for the computer to come free. :-)

Latest theory: his 'n' hers laptops, a big fast powerful one and an ultraportable one. One day.
