Broken laptop


Okay, so it is not really much of an excuse for why I have not done a blog post since late July but it is making things a little difficult. Yes, my two year old Sony Vaio AR11S laptop is officially dying on me. I have no idea how it happened but the hinge on the laptop broke and will most likely stay that way as it cannot be fixed. Having to rely on one hinge is not ideal so portability has become an issue. For a ??1700 laptop I come to expect more than two years usage. It has been an ideal desktop replacement and ideally it would be good to have it fixed but it looks as if I will be purchasing a new machine in the near future. The slightly off centre screen is a tad off putting and the constant worry that the other hinge could perish at any time is not ideal.

Though it pains me to admit it I think I will be purchasing a MacBook Pro when the new versions are released in late October. Being able to have a fast machine that can dual boot Windows and Leopard will be handy and Final Cut Pro should make fan dubbing a less arduous process. That is not to say that I will be getting rid of my AR11S, it will just have to stay in one location for the time being.

So, in summary, despite the dying laptop I am still blogging and building fan DVDs. Hopefully this will be the start of a flood of new posts. I completed several fan DVDs over the summer and intend to post details shortly.
