The HP9000/712 -- a truely beautiful slimine unit, either for the desktop, or to lose somewhere underneath, a wonderful network workstation , and for the time powerful enough to do its own thing .

Holographic Phone Screens
definately stating the obvious
I happliy use a Vodafone dongle on my comute to work between Liverpool and Manchester , but in recent times as smart phones get more popular - the actual access speeds I'm getting are getting to be pretty slow, and painful.
Had a t-mobile connection, but that got to the point 2 years ago when I could connect, but never actually get any data back.
For commutes to London via Liverpool or Manchester - both services are pretty hopeless, with virtually no reliable coverage once you're 10 miles south of the city centres till around Milton Keynes.
You're insulting engineers by publishing this.
Athlon vs Atom
I seem to rember AMD's argument was actually that their low end Althlon and chipset range had a better power consumption/ figures to the Atoms processor, (along with chipset) - only nobody thought of using a processor, that wasn't specifically tailored to the netbook market.
Netbooks not fit for windows 7 then?
Last time I looked most Netbooks were running on 32 bit only Atom processors - so Microsoft's admits that their product is not fit to use with them then?
Well Dabs is offering it for a bit under £200, which sounds good value.
Imap vs Pop3
I may be wrong - but I don't think Pop3 has any of the inbuilt server side mail searching/filtering/storage functionality that imap has built in, enabling you to quickly find the mail you want, and store it somewhere sensible, making far superior to anything pop3 offers.- But then again I guess most mail clients (except pine) don't give you access to all this extra functionality.
www.merseymail.com, was built round Imap, and until recently offered external imap use - a service which sadly has been withdrawn due to over use.
