The End of An Experiment

This weekend, my infatuation with netbooks as production computers ended. As noted here, I have been using a Hackintosh’d Lenovo S10e as my primary home machine since late August. I liked it very much. I still think it’s an awesome little machine that’s great for its size, but that’s the problem.

It was too small. The keyboard was too small. The trackpad was way too small. Most importantly, the 1024×576 screen was unacceptably small. It’s bordering on impossible to be productive with a screen that size. I have been reminded that vertical pixels are the most important ones. I am now writing this on my T42 with its luxuriously expansive 15″ 1400×1050 screen and it’s like night and day.

The best part, though, is the keyboard.
