I often use the world wide web to look for videos that cover topics for classes I am in. It is very helpful and there are more pros than cons for sure! I have a couple of sites I go to and get an explanation that I can pause, rewind, or replay to my hearts content. I have a favorite who I am sure many of you may have heard of. His name is Sal (with Khanacademy) who is known from his online site that offers streaming and downloadable educational videos for free.
So I was watching a video for a refresher in Ochem (finals are next week) and out of curiosity I clicked on one of the interviews that Sal had done for PBS. I often wondered what type of program Sal was using as the black background and his colorful palette of pen colors make his presentation simple and engaging. He was showing the interviewer some things and a shot of him at his laptop aroused my super keen sense as the shot changed to show a front view of his laptop.
He has a ThinkPad.
I just smiled and thought to myself, "I knew it!"
It looks like a Z6x series laptop. The interview was from two years ago and I'm awfully tempted to write him a letter out of curiosity and ask him what sort of laptop he is using currently.
Oh what a wonderful online professor the man is and with the acumen for ThinkPads?! More kudos to the man
