Considering New Laptop - Developing on a 13.3" screen...
Im considering purchasing one of these:
If that link doesn't work, its a Sony Vaio VGN-S4XP
Intel® Pentium® M processor 760, 2.0Ghz, 533 MHz FSB, Supports Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology
13.3" X-Black LCD 1280x800 WXGA
1GB Ram, 100GB HD, Nvidia Geforce Go 6200
This will be used for constant web development work, I go on the occasional business trip, 2-3 times a year. But mainly I want the small footprint and portability for working anywhere in the home and maybe the occasional beach bar ;)
At the moment, I have a Sony Vaio with a 16.1" screen, its nice, but its way to big to even move, let alone the battery only lasting about 20 minutes.
Do you think this will be OK for development with the small screen? Anyone have experience with this?
I know theres the middle range ones, 14.5" etc, but they're all so damn plain and ugly! ultra portables are so wantable :)
