I’m posting this entry from the Man Room. And I’m writing it on a computer hooked to a 42″ high def TV. Sitting on the couch. With wireless keyboard and mouse. The computer is about the size of a brick. I found it on Craigslist. It’s a brand I’ve never even heard of, however it seems loaded.
It’s an ASUS. Yeah, I’ve never heard of them either.
But get a load of the specs:
– Pentium Dual Core 2.50 Ghz
– Windows Vista Premium 64 bit
– 640 GB Disk
– 4 GB 800 Mhz RAM
– 7 USB Ports (3 front, 4 rear)
– HDMI and DVI Video
– 2 Firewire Ports
– Slot load DVD/RW
– Integrated Wireless N Lan
– Integrated 2.4 Ghz Keyboard & Mouse
So I checked these babies out on the web, and apparently they’re pretty cheap even when they’re new – run about $600. However, on Craigslist, they’re much cheaper. 🙂
I’m still working out the bugs. Haven’t gotten file sharing working yet with my main computer upstairs, but they can see each other… just won’t let me in. I think it’s a firewall issue.
Anyhow, hopefully this will be the first of many posts from the man room.
And when I’m finished posting, the simple press of a button on my Harmony 880 remote, and I shall be watching TV. Or a DVD. Or playing Wii. Or listening to my iPod. Or watching a movie off my iPod. If only my microwave worked with the Harmony remote… life would be perfect.
