    Anyone got any advice on the advert seen at Dick Smith in Perth?

    Required for carting around Photoshop, xp, DWeaver, PPoint
    and needing battery life of at least 3 hours.
    need to connect to internet for mail / browse

    Anyone got any opinions on the make and price,
    in relation to the work its required to do?

    Any suggestions for other entry level notebooks that will do the job,
    and will be upgradable to a certain extent?

    thanks :)

    if you want a laptop that will last a long long time get the toshiba.
    (excellent build quality).

    it will do everything you need, also just buy 2 batteries, then you will
    have your 3 hours.
