My new renoise platform(s)

My new renoise platform(s)

Postby aged » Thu Aug 30, 2007 1:11 pm

It was about time to change my laptop to a notebook :D

So i ordered myself this...
HP tx1250eo

Good things->
-small
-touchscreen
-2 batteries included
-renoise runs smoothly
-tiny remote control
-pen holder ;)
-low temperatures
-enough hdd space for a laptop
-light

Baaaaad things-> (so far)
-small (makes the keyboard small too...)
-touchscreen (i wish, i wish it was better, more sensitive..)
-battery life (you get 3 hours with the 6-cell, 2 hours with 4-cell)
-low temperatures (fan spinning all the time, so little noise)
-hdd space (bloated with recovery partition and bundled software :))
-light (i dropped it on the floor once...)
-you can twist the display (...i dropped it)

overall rating : 8
price: got it really cheap

now i'm trying to get myself a new soundcard and a firewire express card :)
the built in "soundcard" is worst soundchip ever made... imagine listening
everything thru a high pass filter.

well, more comments later when i get more familiar with this toy.

me neither :D (and i think, there's no difference)
i had a laptop with 15,4" screen and it really didn't feel like
a laptop compared to this 12" baby..

You don't need this ->

Canon A570 IS
Woo my first digital camera!

w00p, don't mean to hijack your thread. ;)
Tell us how Renoise is on a mac! Is the VST selection as choice? Does it run silky smooth? :)

yeah that's crazy man...

i'm not as rich as aged. my sister is supposed to be handing me down her old laptop soon, which was a handdown from my dad to her.

it's a 1ghz pentium 3. and i'll be happy as hell with it too! at least i will be able to use renoise during lunchbreaks
(it's sure a lot faster than my current laptop that has been stowed away in a closet somewhere for years... pentium 100mhz) :D
