Three years ago I started using a HP Pavillion. Worked well, a bit heavy to lug around and then the screen went wonky. I use that one at home now. The screen is fine but I never close it. You had to squeeze it a bit to get it to work so it sits open on my desk all the time. Last year I got an Acer Netbook and really like it. Much more portable. I don't use the computers for navigation having a chartplotter but do have a GPS engine that plugs into the computer as an emergency backup.
