Pre-purchase Cognitive Dissonance

23 Apr 2002

I'm currently contemplating getting a laptop, for working while away from home, and for giving PowerPoint-like presentations (although I'll be using PDF, of course). I'm looking to spend about £1000, and battery life is important so I want to avoid second-hand machines. The current front runners are an end-of-line Vaio that I saw (although the spec was fairly ropey), a bottom-of-the-range Thinkpad, or Apple's new iBook. If anyone has any suggestions, mail me at rob@rho.org.uk.
