The Asus Eee PC 1005HA-PU1X straddles the boundary between portable netbook and regular laptop. Although slightly larger and heavier than many of it’s competitors, the 1005 boasts features (ie screen size, keyboard, battery life) that allows you to actually use it for serious tasks instead…

The Acer Aspire One 521 is a 10 inch netbook with an AMD Athlon II Neo K125 CPU and ATI Radeon HD4225 graphics. Long story short, it looks like a typical netbook but offers better CPU and graphics performance at the cost of battery life — but the battery’s not *that* bad. You should be able to get 4 hours or more of run time depending on how you use the netbook. You can find more details at liliputing.com.

Running down netbook batteries
Image by sarahgb(theoriginal)
We normally put these back on charge as soon as students return them. Over the summer we are running the batteries down completely before charging them again. We’ve recently regained this room which is being set up as a dedicated AV room with storage and charging of netbooks, laptops and ipads, along with a colleague’s digitisation project.

It’s finally more-or-less finished!
All I have left to do is fix the laptop-half onto the back of the frame more solidly and find some rubber feet so it doesn’t sit on the wall at a slight angle.
So glad I ditched the first attempt and used my other junker laptop instead, it’s worked out so much better and fits on the back of the frame in such a way that if I liked I could keep the battery and whatnot in and can keep the bottom half of the laptop shell on to protect all the bits. So nice.
It was running Twittervision but now it’s got surveillancesaver on it.
Got my netbook. Got my coffee. This is my office. I’m happy

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.
I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.
Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …
The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.
