Well simply for the sake of graduating, I recently got an Asus a42F, which packs enough firepower to run simulations, and have a gigabit ethernet port to connect to the USRP. Why oh why ettus? Why must you make this thing using gigabit ethernet connection? A simple fast ethernet should’ve sufficed :'(.
Oh but it’s still satisfying to buy a new laptop, the netbook wasn’t enough to do decent engineering works
