8th gen, reorientation


Halfway through. No spacelift. But AI seems to getting actually somewhere. Megacons too. You can actually buy 3.5" Disks, casette tapes and even VHS tapes. The new black is IoT and VR (this time for realz i guess).

Made a shot on Ebay, was pretty cheap because it came with a small hdd and only 2gb of ram. That was easy enough to fix. And i finally got a second RX 1000, which seems to be the only non-ergonomic (that's a code word for "actually usable") laser mouse on the planet.
Like the M90 its a older mobile workstation. I really like the design, and its build quality is outstanding. I really like this machine, and i am a bit sad that there are no small notebooks this cool ;)
The lazyboard got more updates. It now has a small table as a stand (which doubles as a side table), and the cable management got cleaned up.
The damn thing somehow lost its ability to detect the dedicated GPU, and after some weeks of using the internal Intel GPU i sold it off and looked for another one.

Awesome little thing, this thing. Though not as little as i like, its light enough. Actually, considering its 14" screen (FHD and IPS, mind you!) 1.6kg are not at all bad. And its build like a brick, even quite servicable. Classic keyboard, trackpoint, long battery life, quiet, docking port, it has it all.
Three years old and yet probably the single most expensive thing i ever bought. Actually, i bought it way over price, and in a rather bad condition. And thus i had to put even more money into it to get it in a decent shape. I could have waited for a better deal, but i was too impatient.
Bad, bad, bad.
Half a year later i realized that i avoided using it by any means. It annoyed me. A LOT. At first unconsciously, but it got worse when i realised it. It was a tad too big too. So i decided to sell it off as long as it was worth anything. Maybe half of what i had thrown into it.
Lesson learned!
