Did you get a solid-state disk?  They are brilliant - everything loads quickly and the battery lasts forever.

Perk of the job. I need something light, fast and portable. This is all three with a brilliant screen.  I also didn't realize how much I missed both the IBM (yeah, yeah, lenovo...) keyboard and the track point nubbin. I think my WPM is up a solid 15%. I'm working on the control with gestures stuff now - cool.

Yeah, I read several of those after hearing that this thing would probably kill me. The harmful stuff is closer to the UV range (big surprise). This one puts out light at about 470nm and no UV.  This is also a frequency present in fluorescent lights, and there is plenty of history with those.

 
If its 470nm and up, only, then you should be fine.  This awareness is one of the newest discoveries in eye health and lens technology.  A new resin for lenses has also been developed that would not require the special coating(s).  At our advanced age its not that big of a deal, however, the risk resumes after cataract surgery as the implants do not block these wavelengths ... yet.

This is a big deal however for anyone 40 and under, especially children who will have their entire lives spent looking at screens that project this light spectrum.

Essilor launches Crizal® Prevencia™:
the first preventive lenses offering selective protection
from harmful blue light and UV rays


Emitted by the sun and also by artificial light sources such as LEDs and computers or smartphones, blue 
light -the range of the visible light spectrum with wavelengths between 380-500 nm- plays a beneficial role on health, in particular by regulating the internal biological clock. However, a specific band of this light might have a harmful effect on the eyes. 

In order to identify the part of the spectrum that is damaging to the human retina, the joint team developed a completely new protocol: an in vitro test on retinal cells with narrow screening light exposure to determine the harmfulness of rays depending on their wavelength. This test -a scientific first in ophthalmic optics- allowed for the discovery that wavelengths between 415 and 455 nm (spectral band 
centered at 435 nm +/- 20nm) are the most harmful for the target retinal cells.

and if you want to go really deep into it, try the white paper on the subject ...

It's nice and compact. I tried a light therapy thing last year with mixed/disappointing results.  This one should be much easier to use and lots of people are raving about blue light so I thought it was worth a shot.

Dear Diary,
I've been using the light therapy for several days now. Energy levels are okay, but there seems to be a more definite shift in my perception of time.
