Portable computer; laptop, netbook, what have you for bicycle touring?
I'm planning on taking a two month or so bicycle tour in the fall and I'd like to stay connected online while I ride around the country. At the moment I only have a desktop so I will need to get some sort of portable computer.
In order of priority I will need reliable, lightweight, as big a screen as possible (it will be my entertainment while I'm tented up if it's raining; ebooks, videos, music), good battery longevity, compact size, largish hard drive for pictures and vids (I guess I could carry an external USB drive though).
I'd prefer Windows if at all possible and of course price is of some concern, I'd like to get something in the $200 - $250 range. Used isn't a problem, I was thinking of possibly some kind of used Apple laptop running Windows but my knowledge of that is just about nil..
