Looking to buy a new notebook. Looking for fast speed, reliable battery life, ability to handle high external temperatures, dust and humidity.

Also should I stick with XP or go with Vista, whcih seems to be what is on offer with most deals right now?

Vista - why go with an OS that's at the end of its lifespan? Also, what's your budget?

XP at the end of its lifespan? That`s something of an exaggeration isn`t it? At least you can be sure it has been proven compatible with thousands of applications which is rather more than can be said for Vista.

Most good laptops will have a spec to operate in upto 90% humidity, and heat of 35C, but reliability will become an issue if used in these conditions for prolonged periods. Also dust can be a real problem for hard drives and fans.

If you are serious about this spec then you should look at ruggedized laptops, but they are more expensive. Example is the GoBook.
