New Notebook

For last few months, I've been thinking about getting myself a new notebook.
After reading some suggestions from Warren's Blog, I've decided to go after a notebook with Intel 950 video and ipw3945 wireless.

After comparing pricing and features on various models, I ended up getting this one from local Costo. The price? Would you believe it only cost me $1199? Similar spec and feature with more popular brand name would've cost me way over $2000.

Anyway, here is a screenshot of running x86_64 version of Fedora Core 6 with resolution 1280x800. I had to use 915resolution from Fedora Extras to get the optimum resolution.
