I must admit I am feeling quite lucky I got the 16" SXGA when I did. I would not have ordered the 8890 if it was just 15". Part of the attraction of the 8890 was the 16" screen (and its expandability - hot swap batteries were not on my list of needs). I am glad I got the 8890 from the point of view of air flow. Being left handed the exhaust air does not affect my mouse hand (although when I gets cold I probably will have to become ambidextrous
so I can stay warm. Mind you here in Sydney heat is more of an issue than cold (my idea of cold when I have to put a sweater on
I think people are a bit over awed by the physical size of the 8890. I know after I posted the "My 8890 is made of CD's"
thread it created quite a stir
I think taziar's cat is still hiding under the couch
What I have found after owning the 8890 other laptops seem like toys in comparison. Even carrying it, which I do quite a lot of, I don't really notice the extra weight. What I do notice though is the extra screen space. Funnily enough I have a Samsung 17" CRT which when I measured the diagonal, the visible image is less than the 16" SXGA screen. I've been ripped - I want my extra inch on my CRT
. Now I am going to have to go out and buy one of those Samsung 191T 19" LCD monitors just to make up the difference
Glad to see you worked out something. After all its just a laptop... or is it...
Oh and by the way - sorry for the use of psychological triggers in my previous post. It comes from reading too many books on Neuro-Linguistic Programming and marketing psychology.
