Default New Laptop.

I use laptops at work like others use hand tools. I call mine my “Digital Screwdriver”.
I write a lot of code for automated machinery. Rock pits, sewer and water plants, pump systems and factory fabrication systems. They get a lot of hard use.
I found a new Toshiba Quasimoto demo at best buy scratch and dent sale. This thing is the nuts. It even came with a remote control. ????
Can you believe a 17 inch screen on a laptop. I had to buy a new case to fit this thing into. Nice and bright, great resolution and fast.
I still haven’t figured out how everything works. I did have to add a PCMCIA DB9 serial port. It has Bluetooth so there is no extra plug in for an optical mouse and I get high speed internet through the link with my cell phone. Talk about wired. It even plays DVDs. There is an adaptor to feed analog or cable TV and record to DVD. I’m getting spoiled. I need to burn some porno to watch while the programs are compiling. Now comes the acid test. See how long it last in the field.
If I only had one computer this would be the one.

I'm using a HP dx9000 w/the 17 inch screen as my desktop.

I thought Panasonic had the market on job site laptops?
