Re: Notebook computer for cruising

We use the Acer Aspire One Happy 2, it has limitations due to not having a burner or HDMI slot but great battery life and light with a 10" screen. Any new Lap top for less than $600 will do all you want and more. Remember that the bigger the screen the more power is used.
I also run both from a DC-DC power pack as most need 19V to run and charge, if you remove the battery most will run on 12v.
