The Laptop

Got my first laptop late last year... but I only started using it recently, as I start to get ready for my trip out West in March.

I found a used iBook on the web, and it cost me $190.00

Back in 2001, it went for about $1,700

But times move fast, and technology wont slow down for the people with a limited income. For anybody clever enough to know how to upgrade systems on their own, you can get by using older toys and still perform the needed tasks.

I also got an Airport card, so that I can do WIFI (when available, in Central Montana). I can upload my digital pics (on iPhoto) and record, using Audacity.

I could use a little more memory, but when you are on a train for 2 days, I can wait!
