RE: Lightweight Laptops...

I think by "this duplex issue" you must mean multi-channel; all sound
cards produced for the past several years have been multi-channel, so no
worries there.

There's no doubt in my mind that if by "light-weight" you mean the
3-pound laptops, I'd look at the IBM Thinkpad X series, in particular
the latest X41.  I got a chance to play with someone elses (I own an A
series Thinkpad which is much larger) and I found the keyboard roomy and
comfortable, while the weight was just amazing.  It only has a 12 inch
screen (pretty typical for this size of laptop), so if you're partially
sighted, or you need to have others see the screen while you work, this
could be a problem.

Otherwise, with the centrino processor you'll get great performance and
great battery life.

It does not come with a floppy drive, so you'll need to purchase the
optional one (and that means an optional media slice/docking bay for the
drive, or perhaps buying a USB floppy will work)for the jaws key, buy
the dongle version, or ask FS what other options are available.

It may not come with XP/home, so this may mean that you'll need the
professional edition of JFW (no difference to you except the price :( ).

Hth,

Chip
