Tablet or Chromebook? That is the question

Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fifteenth of June, and we will once again be fighting for our freedom… not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from Operating Systems! Ok… maybe not. But today does mark the official release/sale of the Chromebook.

MiFi vs Device Independent 3G

Review: Dell Latitude E4200 Ultralight

As of late, I’ve been on a “light and portable” kick. First it was the Dell XT2, then the ASUS Eee PC 1215N and now I’m onto the Dell Latitude E4200 which falls under the “ultralight” category.
