They have printers that have a battery, laptop battery is not powerful
enough. This area is changing fast also, it can range from 2 to 4 hours
depending on how hard you push the machine and what type of machine you
have. The P4 is now in a lot of the units and it likes power, the batteries
and even the ac adaptor is heavier in the new units. I have had a printer
that runs on a battery for about two years but have a power invertor in my
van with a power strip so have never run it on just the batteries, same for
my laptop.

  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,
