They aren't all uber-expensive.

I just bought an Acer 1810TZ for £440 off Dixons (with about £15 cashback from quidco). It's for the ULV 1.3Ghz C2D, 4Gb of Ram, ~7 hours battery. The only downside is the Intel integrated graphics. This is in a 11.6 inch case, perfect for dumping in my bag for use on call or for long journeys.

I'm thinking this machine with an ION2 would be almost the perfect ultra portable. Maybe an i3/i5 would be nice too, but i'm just greedy. The C2D is easily good enough for my purposes.


Has Apple Created the Perfect Board Game Platform? 531

andylim writes " is running an interesting piece about how Apple has created a 'Jumanji (board game) platform.' The 9.7-inch multi-touch screen is perfect for playing board games at home, and you could use Wi-Fi or 3G to play against other people when you're on your own. What would be really interesting is if you could pair the iPad with iPhones, 'Imagine a Scrabble iPad game that used iPhones as letter holders. You could hold up your iPhone so that no one else could see your letters and when you were ready to make a word on the Scrabble iPad board, you could slide them on to the board by flicking the word tiles off your iPhone.' Now that would be cool."
