After months of talking about it, I finally got a new laptop. Man is it nice! More than twice as fast as my IBM Thinkpad 390e, this IBM Thinkpad T20 is a terrific little (really!) guy. At only 1.3" thick (thin?) and 5 lbs, it's almost half as thin and half the weight of my 390e.
I would also like to get a new camera, but the Canon S45 will just have to wait until it gets closer to \$400 (currently \~\$550).
