The 14 inchers are too big and heavy. I was thinking something along a 12
inch screen or smaller. Since this is to be used for motel connections and
mapping software for Garmin units while on a motorcycle travels, it would be
convenient to have durability in the equation as well.
Thanks for any clues. The Sony Varios are nice, but I am not too keen on
Sony products since their batteries seem to cost about as much as the
laptop - okay, and their not-niceness about the copying CD's or DVD's you
buy or rent (legally) into portable players - some of which they make. <my
Anything else out there for compactness?
Re: In need of a small laptop
My favorite traveling machine remains my old Sony Picturebook.
Weighs 1 kilo, does everything I need. The newer Sony ultraportables
have more features, but they're not as good a value since you can get
similar machines for less money. My next biggest laptop (skipping over
my 701) is an IBM X31, but most of the former Sony owners I know
migrated to the Fujitsu line when it came time to upgrade.
