“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” ~St. Francis of Assisi

My new laptop arrived a couple of days ago and I have been immersed in moving my computer life from an older machine to a new machine.  This is quite a bit more work than I had imagined, but it will be worth it.  I travel quite a bit for speaking and I write for hours each day – pretty much every day, so I got the best laptop that I could find  for mixing travel,  speaking ( I use my laptop as a prompter while the audience sees the presentation on the screen behind me.) and writing while on the road.  I ended up choosing the new Sony Vaio “F” series with the fastest quad processor and lots of ram.  I have only been playing with it for 2 days now and I love it.  Fast – super fast and Windows 7?- this is a great improvement over Vista.  I am sure that Vista had some great features – I just never found them.  I had downgraded the 5 computers in my system to XP to avoid the madness of Vista.  Anyhow, I love the Sony “F”. I love what I have experienced of Windows 7. And of course, there is nothing like that new laptop smell!

That’s all the time that I have for today.  Till next time faithful reader…Jack
