Menlo WWL

No Time

My new laptop computer (a Dell Latitude E6510) arrived today, but the process of getting it configured basically ate the rest of my day. Good grief, what a huge laptop computer. It's two inches wider and one inch deeper than my now-retired D610. All hope of ever being able to get anything done on an airplane from a coach seat is now gone. I wish I'd read the spec sheet more closely on the list of available machines. I think I might have taken slightly less performance for a less unwieldy size.

It's also an unavoidable shame that the docking stations, batteries, and sundry accessories for the E series are incompatible with the D series. The only things cross-compatible are the power supplies.
