Wowie! Is this thing ever fast!
Bad news, I have damn-all transferred from the old machine, and still have to grab out my bookmarks (I think. H'mm, better check the thumb drive!) And I have not yet made up my mind about the pseudo-Apple keyboard, which is less than optimally finger-friendly. On the other hand, it may be a little better for touch-typing, so I shall give it time.
Better news, I did stuff most of "My Documents" onto the Toshiba 640GB external drivette and the similar stuff from my old (oooooold) laptop was already on it.
I need to see if my external HD dock works with the HD in my old machine; that'd be the quick way.
Still to come: making one of the laser printers Tam has acquired work as a shared printer! (I love my old h/p 640C Deskjet, the very Ritz for doin' T-shirt iron-ons, but it's never been very good at feeding more than one page and has been steadily getting worse. This is not useful if you want to print something out to ply the ol' blue pencil or write a summary, and printing it at work is Right Out: they've been getting nibbled to death by printer-supplies ducks for years now and only a real rat would add to it.)
