Laptop up and running

HP Pavilion dv6000 (6365) now in the car

New laptop has an ExpressCard slot
rather than PCMCIA, so I had to
purchase a new cellular modem.
I went with a new USB model, which
allows me to put it on the dash -- way
better connectivity than before.
Also, it uses Sprint's EVDO Rev. A,
which is much faster. I get 1.3M downloads,
and 200k uploads. Not bad.

Built-in remote works with Media Center,
which came with Vista.

Gadgets are nice (Mac owners: don't laugh!)


Laptop specs:
Intel Core Duo T5600
2GB RAM
140GB HD
Intel graphics w/shared memory
Widescreen (15.4"?)
SD card reader (multi...)
3USB
1 1394
S-video out
Built-in camera and two mics
DVD/CD burner

All of my most important software runs on Vista, to my relief: OfficeXP, Adobe CS1, SimCity, etc.

Dude, you mean the remote is built in??? Where does it live? Mine sits in the box because I'm afraid I'll lose it!

It slides into the side of the computer. When you press on it, it shoots out under some kind of spring pressure. It's handy in the car, because when it's slow I like to run Media Center and sit in the back seat, stretched out, watching movies or listening to music.
