Got the new Dell laptop today. besides weird key placements (I'm hitting all sorts of keys), the thing is good. Learning why they bother with a battery LED is my first priority, and figuring out how I can disable the nipple and its two little nipple buttons in favor of the mush pad. Most people I know like nipples and hate mush pads. They are wrong. The mush pad is as fast as a mouse and very expressive. The nipples (which I have had to live with since moving to PC laptops) are awful. The first thing I did when I get my Tecra 8000 a few years ago was to get a USB mouse. I don't need it now.

The C600 is fast, has a big beautiful screen, and runs a certain pre-beta 2 operating system IDW very well indeed, which as I'm a beta tester, is about as much as I can tell you without being hunted down by Redmond.

In fact, this build is very good. It's stable, boots extremely fast, and is going to be my work horse for a little bit.
