New Toy: Sony Vaio TR3AP (20 Oct 2004 at 00:36)
New Toy: Sony Vaio TR3AP
Here's another new toy. I got this laptop for nanowrimo next month and for use as a GPS on road trips (very handy!!). The TR3AP is one of Sony's smallest laptops, pictured here next to a 1 Yuan note for scale. I love this little sucker a lot so far.

Oddly, it is a bit thicker and heavier than my last Vaio (N505VE), which I got about 5 years ago. Aren't computers supposed to get smaller? On the other hand, it sports onboard wireless and DVD/CDR, which were sorely missing from the old guy. The case is also plastic, which isn't as cool as the magnesium on the N505VE, especially since this one cost $500 more. But it's still very small, snappy, gets great battery life, and all the good things a laptop is supposed to be.

(PS. We saw Mirah and friends tonight courtesy of WPTS. Two concerts in the same week is starting to make me feel like college again!)

It's great that you provided the 1 Yuan note for size reference, a lot of people are chinese.
