Birthdays a are funny thing. On one hand, you’re a year older but on the other hand, you can talk the “Boss” into almost anything.
This years toy is the HP 2133 Mini-pc.
At $829 from Harvey Norman it’s not as cheap as a ASUS eeepc but it does run Windows Vista Home and has a keyboard that is usable. (About 90% of full size)
I’ll keep you informed of how it goes, especially since it is my first PC with Vista installed. (for now at least)
