Perhaps check out the reviews for the Acre notebooks.


I don't want a notebook. I want a laptop so I can do development work in the garden, or in the middle of a field if I so choose.

The terms are often used interchangeably (although originally I think there was a criteria that a notebook should be scarcely larger than an A$ pad in area, and a laptop could be somewhat larger, but these days, I think the distinction has largely vanished).

Ofcourse, if it is an Acre notebook, it could be the size of a field ;D

I don't need super-whizzo graphics. I don't even need a sound card. It doesn't have to be Wi-Fi. So long as it's quick, has around 100Gb harddrive, 2Gb memory and a couple of USB ports, I'll be happy. Oh, and it has to be able to take a mouse. I hate those touch-sensitive pads.

Not sure on what you are going to roll a mouse over when in the garden, or in the middle of a field (don't think a picnic rug works as a surface to roll a mouse over).  I personally like trackballs (not the mini ones, but full sized ones) - then you don't worry about a surface to roll them over (which, on my cluttered desk, there is nothing free to roll over anyway).

I've got this revolutionary device. It's called a mousepad  :D
