My budget is around the 1K mark but could go up a couple of hundred if need be.
I am planning a long overseas trip, at least 12, maybe 18 months so it needs to be light and very portable.
Obviously i don't need a high powered business tool. Use will be Internet access, Digital photo's, Music, e-mailing, skype & web cam, etc
A friend has recommended Asus and Toshiba, another mate is pushing hard for Macbook who siad the extra $$ is money well spent.
I would appreciate recommendations from those of you out here in "The Know"
