Re: Friendliest Laptop??

G'Day !

I think my last posting bounced, so If this is a repeat ...

Ocean PC sells waterproof / shockproof PC's / Laptops to the boating comunity.
They are kind-of expensive though.

Sailboat racing is not a matter of life and death ....  It is far more important
than that !!!

Thinkpads are the main ones I have been looking at. But they still
run _hot_, so they're totally unsuitable for me. For other people,
great. But it fails one of my requirements. I'm not sure about how durable
the case is, either, but it seems pretty strong.

The Fujitsu LX(T|S) (http://www.dynamism.com/lx) look nice, too, but I
doubt their cases would be at all durable.
