I haven't used a hardware synthesizer since my DecTalk Express.  With the
power of the new computers, and even netbooks, which I am using at the
present time, I see no need for a hardware solution. 
Of course, I am not using the newer more human sounding voices either.  I
think eloquence is still my favorite because it responds much better than
any human sounding voice. 
In the Journey,

I would prefer a hardware synth that would plug into an internal slot in a
laptop, in order to maintain maximum portability. I have not yet found an
internal speech synthesizer for laptops. If such hardware is not available,
then I will use my Doubletalk LT, which plugs into an RS-232 serial
connection, and has its own battery.
The manufacturer of the Doubletalk LT (RC Systems also makes
the Tripletalk speech synthesizer, which might be a good choice for you,
since it connects to a laptop via a USB connection, and would not need its
own battery.

What other considerations are there with an external synthesizer?  I am
looking at up-dating my laptop and would love to know if I should be going
with an external synth or at least if I should plan on the option when I am
not portable to use a quicker solution.
