Here it is assembled. I can well see myself buying different bezels just because.
The assembly and serviceability of this thing is (of course) amazing. One small touch I really enjoyed was this little finger loop on the input cover connector.
The difference this made to seating it was stunning (yes I tried without *for science*).
Just the fact that my laptop came in pieces is novel. It was nicely packed up into the box.
Unfortunately, I had to wait a few hours for my daughter to nap before I could assemble it.

Time for another of my my favorite photos I have taken. This one is from a trip to the Very Large Array in New Mexico. We were lucky enough to visit as part of the Astropy coordination meeting in 2019. Apart from this excellent excursion, the trip in hindsight is notable because it was the last time I visited the USA for a number of years. #photograhy

STS-53 is here and with it we've got a secret satellite, a fictional hot tub, and a space shuttle full of dogs. I promise that sentence will make sense at the end of the episode. #STS53 1/9
