I don't think it's OT either as I just bought a new wireless laptop as a
result of my seven-year old inadequate one couldn't do the job anymore (512M
RAM max is no good for reviewing CAD drawings). I am also now a tech pubs
manager in addition to tech writer and Help developer. Lauren proposed Dell.
I have a Gateway (and have used them for over 10 years without any
problems.) There is a plethora of relatively inexpensive laptops out there;
however, you need to review their specs carefully so you don't paint
yourself into a corner. If you use it for TWing, then you will need
something with a large enough hard drive to hold the programs, a Ethernet
port in addition to the wireless network (not everyone has wireless), USB
2.0 port, etc.

OT....but I want to brag...My photograph "Old Town Sante Fe (Pots and Doors)
won third place in the Main Street Division of the Champlain Valley Fair Art
Show. Not bad for my first art show.
