Thanksgiving with the Eee

Day 23

I went to my Mom's house for Thanksgiving, and after too much turkey and fixings, my brothers and I ended up on the couch - me with the Eee, and them with their Macbooks. Here's what I observed:

  1. The Macbooks discovered the unencrypted wireless signal way faster than the Eee. In fact, when I first searched for it nothing showed. Only after I turned wifi off then on again could I begin the lengthy process of waiting for the signal to change from pending to enabled.
  2. Battery life on the Eee is much better than the Macbook. After an evening of sharing favorite sites, blogs, and trying to RickRoll each other, the Eee's battery life was 60% and the Macbook was at 50%. Realistically, this means the Eee would outlive the Macbook by about an hour.
  3. According to my mom, size does matter. She said I looked funny sitting next to the other, larger Macbooks.
