Re: Laptop recommendations(why a laptop at all?)

Just found this browsing around the pcpowercooling.com site.


These things are about half-way between a desktop and a laptop: 1U
rack-mountable, and have a PCI slot.  They fit in a little case, too, and
come in well under $2000 before monitor.

Because having it racked minimizes the number of connections that have to 
made during on-stage setup.  Just plug in the power and the monitor and
you're on, plus the rack does provide *some* protection and makes the PC
stackable with other racks.
