Currently using a very old Dell Latitude D610, XP Professional. It is slow and battery life is just about 1 1/4 hours. My requirements are very modest :
most important is to stay on the small side for ease of schlepping around with it. I use it in bed while on the 5fu pump, and take it to the chemo center to help pass the 5 hours down there. Small and lightweight. I think a 14" would be OK but may the 15.6"? I have no extraordinary usage requirements...no photoshop, etc. I just check email and post on the forum trying not to annoy hj too much! I stream some audio ( old time radio shows) which actually works fine even on this dinosaur. I don't think I really need to stream video, but .....maybe.......
Not much need for gigantic on board memory or hard drive.
Any thoughts? Thanks,
