a small computer display (Cinema Display HD)
This was my second time driving down to Canberra by myself. Unlike the skillful Don who has a powerful BMW, I had to use Laurent's car because Antony does not own a car. And it is interesting to note that Laurent's car is not as efficient as Don's BMW!
Don's BMW was able to drive 650km from beautiful Boston (in Massachusetts) to reputable RIT (in Rochester, New York) without refilling petrol. As for Laurent's car, I had to refill petrol half way back. I filled up the petrol full just before I depart, and after travelling about 446km (134km reminding), there was less than 1/4 of petrol in the car. I decided no to take the chance, and filled up the car when I saw a very busy petrol station.
Unlike the previous Cinema Display (20-inch with ADC connection) (bought in April 2004, and sold in January 2007), this Cinema Display HD is 23-inch, and used industry standard DVI input.
Quick specifications of this Cinema Display HD (model: A1082):
If memory serves correctly, Mr Sam Elphick also has this 23-inch Cinema Display HD. It's good to have a Cinema Display.
For Don's information, I, being very un-Don, used the GPS Navigation system for the trip, and distance was measured by the device.
Just in case Don missed out the points: the monitor is secondhand, it is previous generation/model, and Antony does not own a car (BMW or not), therefore Antony is poor.

(to Don: Antony is poor.)
