Our Transmonde Was Stolen!!!
- Our Vivante XL (Pentium II 400 / 128 RAM / 10 GB / all the bells and
whistles) was stolen from our rental car while on vacation.
Fortunately it was insured, and our insurance company should soon be
sending us a check for $3000-3500. Gee, and we had just jumped
through all of ASE-USA's hoops to get it repaired...
*** Is this a blessing in disguise??? ***
(No, cynics: we did *not* orchestrate this theft; we would *never* do
such a thing - we just got "lucky," I guess. Besides, who in his/her
right mind would go to the trouble and expense of shipping the thing
to ASE for repairs if we didn't intend to keep it?)
...So, folks, what should we replace it with? We'd rather not repeat
the experience of having our laptop's manufacturer vaporize just weeks
after buying it, but we sure would like to find a company that has
some semblance of the kind of technical support that Transmonde
boasted in its heyday - not to mention get ourselves a real nice
replacement. (I guess this is our second chance to get the laptop we
should've gotten in the first place instead of gambling on
What what you get, if you were in our shoes?

bought my Vivante SE. Depending on your opinion of your former Transmonde,
you may want to avoid notebooks made by ASE Technologies (or vice versa).
