... will try to find a more robust hard drive, and will report how that goes.
The X41 has a 1.8" hard drive that is proprietary in design and cannot be upgraded past 60GB capacity and 4,200RPM speed.
I thought it was only because the zif connector was on the wrong side? a zif to cf adapter could allow for something like a fast 32gb cf card i think.. but yea you're right. we are stuck with the slow hard drives....
I would mostly be using it for Video Game Development and maybe some fun art stuff with GIMP.
Plus, I've got some college classes coming up, so it could be potentially handy for note taking. I've always had hand-me-down computers ever since I took interest in the hobby, so I suppose I should get a new one for once if I can. I'm actually more interested in the tablet mode just for fun than anything... but I'm looking forward to seeing what cool art I can make with it. I have a miniscule wacom digitizer, and I can't stand to use it, partially because it's so far removed from what I'm drawing.
I don't know, I use computers for all sorts of stuff-- something new every week. XD Problem is, I can't afford one. I never can. -_-
well im running an older version of photoshop so it is alright. I bet a newer gimp would be even more streamlined and faster. if by development you mean coding and not 3d and rendering then the 41 should do. I ran borland jbuilder without hitch.
