Re: Sony Vaio N505* vs Toshiba Portege 34*
I am using an Acer Travelmate 342T (I think that is the number). It has a
9 G hard drive, 500MHz PIII eithernet and winmodem outside pcmcia. I
installed slink without PCMCIA and upgraded to potato. I still have to
work out the winmodem, although others have. Ethernet works easily. It's
very light weight (profile like the VAIO).
