I bought an Acer 5535 laptop from TigerDirect. I'm starting to get used to it. It has a full sized keyboard and a number pad. Kind of crappy battery life, and it's got Vista on it, but whatever...it was a good price. The main reason I got a laptop is so I can get work done when I'm away from Tallahassee on my amorous trips up north. I need to get it set up for remote control of my desktop machine at school. That way I can use the power of the number crunching laptop from the convenient location of wherever I am. It's also a portable DVD player, but I don't think it could get through an entire DVD without having some wall power. I picked up a power inverter to plug into my car's cigarette lighter for taking this thing on road trips.
