So a friend used to do alot of travelling as a semi-conductor call centre manager. He used to fly most weeks and spend probably most of his time away from his office desk. So obviously because of this he spent alot of time in airports. So basically he made the comment:
"I would much rather have a simple black and white display laptop that was light and the battery lasted for ages rather than a almost desktop style laptop with a high res screen and all the latest gizmos."
I wondered what you guys think to this, remember the circumstances he is talking about though because it is easy to jump to a quick decision.
