    I’m currently using a Dell Mini 12″. Weighs 2 lbs and is slim enough to fit in my camera bag. Also has an SD slot on it for transferring photos.

    I recently bought a netbook (Acer Aspire One). The main purpose for this tiny thing is to hang around with me when I’m on travel, and here are some of the reasons why I bought it :
    – It’s small, compact and very light. I can hide it in my wife’s handbag.
    – Has a very good autonomy when running on its cell batteries.
    – Running both Windows XP and Ubuntu, all the graphic softwares are linux-based and thus free. It just take a short while to get used to Gimp, and it does 99% of what Photoshop does when quickly editing pictures on the move.
    – It’s very cheap.
    I must say that I wouldn’t mind a slightly bigger screen, but it makes wonders and works very well so far.

    This article proves that you have no idea what the h*** you’re talking about. What the h*** is a laptop for photographers? Do you honestly think you know what you’re talking about?

    Any PC laptop choices for around $1k? The 2 you have are nice but a bit on the extreme side.

    I work on a Toshiba Satellite 15.4″ L305. The hardware was a good deal for the price and the size makes it easy to see shots in Lightroom without having the extra weight of a 17″. Coupled with my Canon EOS 450D and EOS Remote Utility I’ve have good luck doing product photography and taking hundreds of shots without ever touching the camera.

    I have just purchased the Dell Studio XPS16 with a 500gb 7200rpm hard drive and most importantly with the RGBLED monitor. I really look forward to seeing how well the monitor reproduces color…

    The first function of my netbook is to move photos, from memory card to external hard drive. There are custom card readers that do the same job.
    The SECOND function is to convert the RAW format pictures of my Nikon d200 into jpegs. These can be given to friends, or copied to USB stick and taken to a photo prinitng shop.
    The THIRD function is basic image editing (brightness etc) before images are shared / edited.
    The FOURTH function is to “stitch” panoramas together.

    For all this, I can still get by with an Acer Aspire netbook, ACDSee, and PtGui.
    Photoshop is on my “big” PC at home for anything more advanced.

    I have a Macbook pro. It does not have a CF card reader …. Canon Eos 20 D & up. Do you download with a cable, or buy a card reader – I want to travel light.

    The biggest mistake I made was purchasing a Dell 15″ Inspiron. I should have waited and got something a little more expensive but hey it was a Christmas sale. Not that this is a bad computer it works great , but the first thing I noticed is that the add-on software hogged up a big chunck of my 80G hard-drive. The killer was the resolution on the LCD screen. It is virtually impossible to edit your photos with this screen because the colors change depending on the lights, the angle you are looking at it or the angle it is placed at. This screen is non-replaceable so now I’m stuck with it. I was hoping to use this computer for my Event photography, but now i’m having second thoughts. Another gotcha is that the thing is Heavy with a capital H. If I can find a nice notebook with a decent screen I might just trade it in.
