Recently I bought two pieces of hardware, a laptop and a router. Here`s the review…

After one month of Toshiba laptop usage, I can safely say that this is a good buy. Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 1MA laptop, which features Pentium 2 dual core processors, 2 gigabytes of RAM, 200 GB hard drive and a wifi + bluetooth adapter does it for me and my computing needs. Even the operating system, the “notorious” Windows Vista Business turns out to be the best of the Windows operating system I came across (I`ve been using 3.1, 95, 98, ME, 2000 and XP editions). Everything works and with satisfactory speed, and I have yet to come across a single blue screen. Even program hang-ups, something that occurs daily on my desktop machine, are very very very scarce. I do have a question – what do you use to clean your screen with? Mine`s getting a little dusty and I am wondering if a piece of cloth I am currently using to clean my glasses with will do the job.

After turning in my previous router, which was breaking down constantly, Avtera decided it was time for an upgrade. They brought back a Linksys WRT54GC router, which features wired as well as wireless access point. I am immensely satisfied with this piece of hardware as well, since I`ve managed to establish wireless connections (laptop and printer) without a break of a sweat and I now have oodles of UTP cables to spare. The thing I also like about the router is its size. It`s very small, which comes very in handy (the previous model, BEFSR41, was a giant compared to the one I own now). I am currently using native firmware but thinking about flashing it with Tomato firmware. Any tips from anyone?
