Note to self: Laptop

Looking at the future of Angus it occurs to me that I need to buy a really good new laptop loaded with all the programs I need so I can still keep on top of things whilst I am away from home.

Must check that out at Christmas if I have any spare money.

What manner of things do you wish to do?

There is approx £300 standard windows laptop that will surf internet and be moderataly portable.
There are £250 very small laptops that run linux and are good for travelling.
Then there are >£500 laptops in the windows and mac camps that will act as laptop and main machine.

Have a muse on what sorts of function you'd like it to perform, and we can find something that fits requirements.

F'r instance I took my laptop to GenCon and it was the best thing I did. That and iphone/smartphone meant I was in touch and could do odds and sods as I wandered vs having to wait until I got home and had access to tech again.

You know you can get laptops for £250 that are fairly light and do editing/email perfectly well?

Advent 4211 or HP Mini Note (when they upgrade the processor) would make superb travelling machines. The Advent is especially good as it's not "Windows taxed" (ie. it comes with XP Home as standard, you don't get to pay more for a Windows version). We have two, though admittedly they are now running OS X ;)

I'll have mine with at the weekend if you want to check it out.

I can only recommend that you get yourself to Seattle for some laptop shopping. Think of all the money you'll save if you buy over here!
