Say hello to Saint
I just received my new shiny new Acer Travelmate 8104 today and named him Saint (my computers, for some reason, are male!) This little guy is a scorcher: It's got the latest Sonoma processor (Pentium M 760, 2GHz with 533 MHz FSB and 2MB L2 cache) as well as an ATI Mobility Radeon X700 (128MB) graphics card and 1GB ram, coupled with a 100GB hard drive. All this in an under 3kg machine is quite something. My goodness, I still remember my first IBM Compatible -- it was an 8086 and had (for the time) a whopping 640KB of memory and get this, a 20MB hard drive. Oh yes, it was the Mercedes of its time. It was huge, metal and noisy. The 4-color CGA screen it had wasn't anything to write home about but I remember being excited that it even *had* color (C64 and Amiga owners from back in the day will kindly refrain from commenting -- I know, I know...) It's amazing to see how far computers have come in such a relatively short period of time and I can't wait to see where they go!
