Just get a <a href="http://www.anandtech.com/mobile/showdoc.html?i=1661

I'm in college, a 2nd year Grad student in Architecture at the University of Florida. I was required to purchase a laptop many years ago by my department. Initially after looking at prices of notebooks I was not happy. I really wanted to get a desktop for less money with a larger monitor. After a few years of using my laptop, I must say I use it daily at home and often take it with me on trips and vacations - not to mention class presentations and image downloads from my digital camera. This laptop is vital to my ability to keep producing.. Not being retricted to a single room in my apartment. Why not have the freedom of a laptop?
