Hi Bill...All I use are laptops....my 1st was an IBM Thinkpad purchased in
Jan 1998....Have had very few problems with it.  The 2nd was a Compaq
Pressario, purchased in Nov 99.  Had touchpad replaced 3 times under
Compaq's warranty and Best Buy's extended warranty.  Hard drive died right
after 3 yr extended warranty ran out.  Thank goodness had IBM for backup.
Will not purchase another Compaq.  My main laptop now is a Sony Vaio,
purchased in March 2002.  So far, no complaints.  Came with a lot of bells
and whistles I don't use.  I like the touchpad much better than the little
finger knob IBM calls the mouse.  Check Sam's against Best Buy....maybe they
will match.  I am not familiar with Winbook, though.  Good luck!!

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

  Any comments/recommendations will be appreciated.
