My new laptop is here! My preciousss!

I've bought myself a new laptop. I'm so very pleased with it that I decided to write an article and show off my latest toy. It's also a great lesson in Linux, since the machine runs four operating systems, with the fifth on the way. So if you're in a mood for some ego-centric eye candy, do take a look.

The machine itself is LG RD510 model, with black-red-gradient monitor panel and a white keyboard panel with its own numpad. It has a Core 2 Duo P7450 processors, clocked at 2.13GHz, with 3MB L2 cache, seated on a 1066MHz mobo. I've rigged it with 2x2GB Kingston DDR2 800MHz sticks, to take full advantage of the dual memory channel. It's also equipped with a handsome Nvidia 9600M GS card with 512MB RAM, plus a decent Toshiba 320GB SATA II 5400rpm hard disk.

Then, there's the usual plethora of peripherals, a built-in webcam, Intel Wireless, Bluetooth, FireWire 800, e-SATA, VGA, HDMI, all sorts of smart card readers, and two USB ports. Oh yes, 15.1" screen.

It's a real treat for the eyes.
