Subject: Re: 5.0310 Qs: ... What to Buy

In reply to Randall Jones' question about laptops, I would point out
that one pays a good deal extra for the capacity to operate for a
*very* few hours on a battery. If one really wants a portable computer
to be used at electric outlets in various places, then there are much
less expensive options. They are a bit heavier and larger, but the have
better screens, and the cost is much more nearly that of a standard desktop
machine. These are to old lunchbox type portables, and they can be put
together by a competent computer store to your specs.
