Laptops Continued

Tiny dog, tiny netbook
Caelan, Aaron and I spent the day working on the laptop station. (Thanks, guys!) Lots of work left to be done -- organizing and documenting, not to mention tearing through the tremendous amounts of stock -- but we got two or three laptops down into the store, matched a few more with power supplies, and prepared a half-dozen more for scrapping.

I expect to be working on this station for the next few weeks, and if anyone is experienced with laptops and wants to give a hand in the organization, you're more than welcome -- even if it's not a Thursday. In fact, especially if it's not a Thursday. One of the things that works best about the build stations is that they're self-documenting; a build sheet should give enough information about any machine that someone else can tell what's happening with it. I'd love to be able to say the same thing about the laptop station.

Here's how it looks for now:
Laptops, Day 1
Not perfect, but starting to show a clear horizontal working surface (dangerously attractive for clutter).

Thanks also to whoever else did some clean-up here!
