Now established in Morzine. Weather good, snow wonderful, photos to follow.
I’ve bought an MSI Wind for travelling. It was only £309 from play.com and came with Windows XP, a 160GB hard drive, 1 GB RAM, wifi, bluetooth and a 6-cell battery. A second gig of RAM cost about £11 from crucial.com.
It’s now running Mac OS X, 10.5.6. There’s lots of information at MSIWind.net including full instructions on how to install Apple’s operating system. Once you have all the downloaded components to hand it’s about a 90 minute job. Everything works under OS X except sound in and the internal camera – new drivers are in progress.
All-in-all, a great little solution if you don’t want to carry a MacBook or MacBook Pro around with you.
We went up to Leicester to collect an old Audi estate that we’re going to use in France for the next two months. Only £21.50 on the train from Portsmouth to Leicester!
Made a lot of progress on my panoramas. They’re all made with the Zoomify feature in Photoshop. Dead easy!
