One thing to remember is that most laptops will be a little slower then a
workstation, not that noticeable unless you are a power user, the info you
provided is good, however, not knowing your setup, you would need a modem
and a NIC and most now have them built in. USB 2.0 is getting ready to come
out in notebooks also. USB 1.1 is 77MBPS and 2.0 is 480MBPS, you can
purchase a pcmcia usb2.0 card to give you this ability if your motherboard
doesn't support 2.0. A lot of the manufacturer's are not providing software
with their machines now of which winbook is one. I don't like this, however,
HP, Compaq and a lot of the others are doing it. Good Luck, Dave

  I deal almost strictly with Dells so unable to provide guidance. They
appear to have a good tech page, http://www.winbookcorp.com/

      I am strongly considering buying a laptop computer.  Most all my
experience is with desktops, so I would like everyone's input on the pros,
cons and pitfalls.

      My local Sam's Club has a Winbook, 2.4 gig Pentium 4 , 40 gig HD, 512
MB DDR, 56k, for about $1200.00 US.  From what I have seen this is a great
price.

      Any comments/recommendations will be appreciated.

    Hey Bill,
    Sounds very good indeed, but could you go here:
    http://www.winbook.com/notebooks/notebooks.html
    and let us know exactly which series and model number of the unit that
SAM'S has for sale at that price?

    Thanks,
