Well, I placed a bid on a computer on ebay, and got it.
The auction was just over, and the last hour or so was very exciting. There were bids up until the last minute. It was very touch-and-go, and I'm so stunned that I don't know how I feel about this. Once it arrives and I start to use it, I'm sure I'll love it. It's got a lot of features to love. It's basically a tablet netbook.
It's a Compaq TC1100 Tablet PC notebook computer. It was owned by a company that did a project on a yearly basis, and the computer was used only for that. It was kept in good shape, and includes the original manuals, OS replacement discs, and even a leather case. It has lots of connectivity. The computer is a discontinued model, but was very popular, and there are scads of replacement parts out there if I need them in the future.
Reviews by owners call it sleek and modern, but it looks more steampunk to me. Very Warehouse 13. If it had an onboard video camera, I'd be thinking about calling it Farnsworth.
I'm so stunned that I'm really at a loss for words.
I'm down to the heel flap on the first sock for Kyle (photo later), and there's a new episode of Leverage tonight.
That's about all the news I'm capable of at this point.
Have a great evening!
