My trusty Lenovo 13″ laptop has finally taken one knock too many and the screen is very unhealthy. As it has served more than two years for about $600 I won’t complain. I think it is time for an SSD-based machine with at least 320 Gb of disk, 8 GB of RAM, and ideally an SD card reader for grabbing digital photos. Anyone have a favorite machine for travel? I suppose it should run windows 8 but I am not sure about the idea of convertible tablet. I am still recovering from the Tablet PC that I bought 10 years ago. I want it to be cheap enough that I won’t cry if it is dropped.
