i have been waiting for [a] a better/faster/more generally useful
computer as well as =mostly= cheaper unit. i figured i would wait
until fall to ask, but it's close enough.
can i watch a streamed movie on am atom [[[1.6ghz intel]]] chip.
i have trouble on my 2003 dell that has a 2.4ghz cpu. it has plenty of
ram, disk, etc. so i've hesitated. on my 3.0gh thinkpad, streams fly
flawlessly. So if i buy one of the notebooks with a 7" - 10" screen,
can i use it for things other than a text-to-speech computer?
how thrifty | cheap should i be? i'd like to buy the optical device
rather than install via one of those stick memory devices. i have
never used anything but the disc. i think it is at least two hundred
bux more, but if it is a must, then so be it. i've looked for am atom
notebook fo r < 200 bux. pretty hard to find, so are there any places i
i saw an A9 tablet with some kind of keyboard that might work as a
speech computer. this is my real goal, leaving shit and shinola
behind. but i'm not sure that a tablet would be as useful as a
RESt of the story: i'm using the kde ktt* along with the festival
speech toolkit. i also have vi/nvi or vim set up with around 125 abbrv
so that people who type slowly can be more efficient.
