At a glance: IBM ThinkPad A31p notebook computer, 1.7GHz Pentium 4 / 512Mb RAM / 60Gb HD / UXGA / CD-RW & DVD-ROM / 100mbps Ethernet / 802.11b WiFi / Bluetooth / Firewire
Etymology: Named after a ship of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, as are most of my notebook computers (alluding to their mobility). Hence I have other notebooks named Vingilot and Hirilonde. Númerrámar means "West-Wings" and was the second ship build by Vëantur, grandfather of Anardil, later crowned Tar-Aldarion of Numenor.
