Last week I've spent 3 days on a customer in order to trying to improve
performances on certain applications they have. The day before I've spent 2
hours on preparing tools and a demo on my notebook, an old P4 Sony Vaio 17" with
1Gb of RAM that has always done a great work during these years. When I arrived
to the customer's site, I've turned on my notebook and... no sign of life!
I've tryed to replace and remove the battery, the disks, the RAM modules but
nothing happens: the notebook was dead!
Now my dear Vaio is on an hardware's shop that will try to understand what
could be the problem, but actually I've no news. I think the time for a
notebook's change is coming...
Actually I've not decided when the change will happen, but my new notebook
will have at least these characteristics:
- slim and light (I'm thinking on a 14" display because actually I need
- high resolution video with a dedicated video hardware (the "Vista era" is
- core duo cpu
If anyone has suggestions, they're always welcome
