Laptops

Post by Kevlar » Mon Jun 30, 2008 7:52 am

I was thinking of getting me a laptop light or similar to play Kol whilst I'm travelling (sad I know)

Has anyone tried (or got) any of the small models? Is was thinking of something like the Asus Eee PC 701.

By "light," do you mean "cheap" or "very small?"

If you are actually planning to travel with it at least semi-regularly, I'd go with a Lenovo x61 or x300, depending on how you feel about weight v. price. Consumer-grade laptops won't hold up long term, and Lenovo has the strongest professional line.

I can personally speak for thinkpads...
They are all I use and I LOVE them. I recently purchsed a T61p during the last sale and this thing is solid! It is my 4th one, that I have owned. (T20, T 30, T60p and T61p) It has run everything I've thrown at it. I hear great things about the x300 but it might be cost prohibitive, although the idea of a solid state HD is pretty cool!
If you have any questions please feel free to ask...

Let me know if you're thinking of a Lenovo--I have a code around here somewhere for up to 40% off their notebooks.
