I've had my laptop for quite a few years and it's been my everything (only!) machine. When I resumed work as a consultant about 18 months ago it was great that I had a portable machine. But as I got more and more work it was clear that I needed something more compact. Enter my new Samsung. It's literally half the size of the laptop, but does everything I want it to do when visiting clients. I got it Monday, fired it up and loaded Word on Tuesday and it went straight to work yesterday. It's a little ripper!!
