On my Christmas vacation I carried a new friend with me that everyone was nuts about. What was it? What’s the brand? How much did it cost?
I had just bought a brand new MSI Wind on Amazon.com for a little less than $400 bucks.
Eight months later I can tell you that this machine has increased my work output by at least 10x. I carry it everywhere, I’m now writing a novel, two blogs and coding my next app while riding on the subway, I take it to the conference room and show power point presentations under my co-worker’s jealous glances, I surf the web while watching TV and my wife almost doesn’t mind it. Without knowing it, I had been waiting for a long time for something like this, and so were thousands of people.
The only thing, of course, is that it’s not an Apple — and I’m an Apple fan. I have an iPhone, an iMac and an iBook, and would have loved this next purchase to be an iTablet.
