Re: Notebook computer for cruising

Jackdale (and the rest of you guys too), besides the manufacturer, can you tell me the model numbers too? I've been looking at Acer too, but they have about a dozen netbook models and I'm having a hard time figuring out what is best for me. I'm looking for a computer that can load something like Coastal Explorer, be able to emulate a second station in my Raymarine E80 set up, be able to uplink email and such into an ICOM SSB, have wifi and skype capability, long battery life, run basic Word and Excel, be able to store MP3 files and movies etc. Just your basic cruising computer that does it all!
