need laptop recommendations

I want to buy a reasonably tough computer (for travel) which needs a large memory capacity for storing photographs, accessing internet etc. Possibly GBS ?

I would like to run this (and my camera battery and mobile ) on a solar panel.

Who can give me the best solution ?

love, Sarah.

So you'll be wanting a large hard drive at least 60gig if not an 80 or more? At least 512ram and a fairly high end processor and battery life needs to be good. Plus you'll be wanting a wireless net connection as well.

I'd look at a PentiumM based system. The pM's are designed for the mobile setting so have good battery life. The top of the range pM's compare to a top end pentium processor. Look into the graphics chip as well see if its got its own memory or shares system memory.

What sort of a budget do you have to work with?

Hi. Im looking to get a decent laptop that will last me for a decent amount of time in the future. ive been looking at the Dell Inspiron 6000. Ive got a budget of about 500-600 and that is coming in at 588. Although im pretty basic at pcs at the mo i want something that i was delvelope my knowledge will be sutiable for the long term so im not looking to upgrade. It has a decent 512mb ram and 60gb hd with 5hr on the battery. 4usb port and fire port the processor is an intel pentium 1.70ghz and internal bluetooth which i dont have a clue what it is. Any opinion on this laptop?

Juicypeach - Tough laptop, eh? Panasonic Toughbook's click here are a little on the expensive side.
