One of my letters was from one of my creative writing-poetry professors who was very against me going to law school, and it did ok by me.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Got my Dell 700m today........

yeah, im getting a lot of crud on my screen too.  can i just use a t-shirt to gently wipe it off?  it's mostly just dust.
and yeah, my extended battery goes for five hours.

You know, I'm not sure if a shirt is the best thing.  My eyes aren't great, so I would be worried that what I thought was dust might be something a little harder.  That screen seems like it would both scratch easily and make a scratch pretty visible.  There was a discussion about this on the Dell board at www.notebookforums.com and most recommended a microfiber eyeglass cloth, so that's what I got.

Copied from Buffslaw.blogspot.com:

Go, Buffaloes!

From April 25's Newsweek:

The peak seasons for STD testing at several different universities:

U Penn: Post-spring break. Students regret risky business once back from warmer climes
U Arizona: Every Monday. Wild on the weekends.
UGA: Football season. Parties, beer, bad decisions.
Duke: Basketball season. Anything goes in 'tent city.'
Boise State: Before Christmas and spring break. Students want to know before going home. How to tell the 'rents?
U Colorado: No spike. Health clinic booked solid year round. Go, Buffaloes.


On a related note, AS day at CU-Boulder ended with beers on the lawn outside the law school.:)

5.5 hours?!?  Dang!  I get about 3.5-4 hours out of mine, tops, and thats just wordpad and surfing.  Maybe I should send it in and see if I can get a new one.

As for the screen, I bought an eyeglass cleaner cloth and wet it just a little to wipe the screen, then I polish a little with that blue cloth they give you in the Klearscreen baggie.  Not great, but ok.  Might have to buy some more of those wipes.

FWIW, I have really bad eyes, and I haven't noticed a big jump in diffuculty between my 700m and the LCD monitor I use at home.  I have the text size increased on both, and I get along ok.  Also, I've never had a laptop all to myself before, so I couldn't imagine using anything bigger than this.  I have it with me almost constantly.  I've seen some other people's laptops in class, and those things are friggin HUGE!!!



There are a couple things I don't like about the 700m, however.  The battery life with the standard battery is horrible, and the extended battery is servicable at best.  Also, the shiny screen service gives a great picture, but attracts crud like you wouldn't believe.  I've got to wipe that thing off constantly.  Other than those two things, I'm super pleased with the machine.  I didn't have the small keyboard issues that some others have mentioned, and I have average to large sized hands.

Law School Applications / Re: High school dropout here.

I dropped out too.  GED represent!

Seriously, anyone who can pull a 3.8 in EE is pretty bad ass in my book.  I doubt you'll have trouble finding a spot.

Two things:

A refurbished "Tron" stand up arcade game.  Light cycles, spiders, tanks?  F'n A!

Also, a bad ass lowrider van, with a mural of myself on the side dressed up as an aztec warrior.  With a sound system on which I can play illegally loud mariachi music every where I go.

I vote for that Jim Carey movie.  Liar liar?  I think that's it.  All I remember is a Carey air-humping scene, but that's enough.
