Out of all the notebooks and laptops (btw, what’s the diff?) I played with at my local tech showroom (Futureshop), my well-designed stamp of approval goes to the Toshiba Satellite Z930 – Nice job Toshiba!
Last week marked our one year anniversary in Nepal. Amazingly on one hand, time has really flown by. On the other hand however, considering all the changes we have experienced, our time here has felt much, MUCH longer.
Greetings to all new VSO volunteers who are coming to Nepal. Here is what you need to know regarding IT… Bring your own laptop – your laptop will be your source of entertainment (movies, tv, music, photos, etc.) and it will allow you to work from anywhere (at home, at Cyber cafes, wi-fi enabled restaurants […]
