    有一阵子没写我的发烧经了,怕像以前玩音响後来又玩相机和镜头时候一样,玩起来没完了。

    不过最近开始关注8.9寸屏幕的迷你笔记本。因为时不时遇到重要采访的时候往往需要背上长焦短焦两大镜头再加备用机身,那时候背包是巨沉巨沉的,但往往因为重要的采访需要在外面及时发稿,比如刘翔来纽约比赛,所以当我不得不再带一个笔记本、也就意味着要额外带一个笔记本包的时候,就非常地不方便。14寸的本本,5磅左右的重量,单带还将就。但在我已经承受重负的时候,这感觉多的就不是一点点了--也许,关键是,我现在不开车,走哪,都得一块儿背着拎着。

    看到Asus的EEE PC,对其两磅多点的重量有点动心,却因为老款的易PC显示屏像素太少、硬盘太小而作罢。不知道是巧合还是什么的,没想到,最近突然发现,各厂商忽然一窝蜂似的开始研发类似EEE PC的微型笔记本,而且指标都比较接近我的胃口,尤其多半开始装比core 2 duo还凉快的Atom型号的CPU(1.6 Gh的速度对于发稿专用的后备机来说够用了,而且省电,巨凉快),屏幕分辨率也上来了,而且大多在400刀左右,或500以下,便宜!怎么我刚开始关注,各厂商就开始大干快上都来了?我要买这种键盘较小不一定打字舒服的机器纯粹是为了方便在外干活的便携,真不知道为什么这类笔记本为什么突然这么火,不知道别人买这么小的机机是要干什么?难道,纯粹是好玩?

    不过有点烦人的是,目前各厂商多半是宣布开发出某产品,结果大多还没有上市,比如Acer的Aspire One目前只有8G SSD版上市,原来同时宣布的80G硬盘版还没有影子,急;戴尔的E系列也是一个月前露头让大家炒作了一番,真正上市据说还要8月底或9月,时间不长不短,急死人;还有Lenovo的,还有惠普,还有微星,甚至还有Sylvania、Averatec、Hanspree等都在推出所谓的netbook(功能小巧,上网为主的笔记本)。急啊,又想快点整一台就开实用,又希望各家都出来后对比一下买个性价比高的,又明知道现在SSD都容量小是因为价格高,过不了多久价格会直线下来,可,谁能再等它一年两年?还是用起来再说吧。
