Teeny tiny computer

Mary is typing this blog entry on a teeny tiny computer she just bought--a Dell Mini, with an 8-inch screen. The keyboard is pretty small, so it is taking some time to get used to it. She bought it to take with her to work so she could write at lunchtime. Her old Dell laptop is very large (it is a widescreen) and really too heavy to carry around, especially with her back troubles.

So she decided to buy a used Dell Mini from the Dell Outlet. Didn't even know there was such a thing until recently.

It certainly doesn't appear to be used; it's in really good shape. Has everything she needs, including wireless Internet access and even a tiny Webcam (Skype, anyone?).

Amazing that a computer can really be this small. It is still amazing that we can have computers in our home! Remember when they took up whole floors of buildings?

The times, they are a-changin'. Well actually, they have already changed!
