New laptop

Work bought me a new laptop. It’s a Compaq evo n600c. Not my first choice, but can’t beat the price.

Two weird things about it.

It is very strange to have a laptop that actually runs for *hours* on the battery. For years no, my ThinkPad has gotten, maybe, 10 minutes off of the battery.

Second, it won’t suspend. This is a shame because I use that feature extensively. In fact, with my ThinkPad, I would go months without rebooting – just suspend. To be more accurate, it suspends, but won’t come back, or comes back with very corrupted video. Hopefully there’s a fix for this somewhere, but I have not found anything helpful yet.
