  • What? You're supposed to take the camera away from your face?
  • Great tips, all. I'm savin' up for a cheap notebook, tho I am devoted to Mac for all things. A small PC is perfect for notes, Internet, checking e-mail, etc.
    I think Allan Lynch and I were separated at birth -- having no tight deadlines and not being a photographer, the idea of moleskin notebooks (so chic!) and pen is positively trendsetting! As is actually being in the place you're reporting from, without being tethered by technological tyranny. Am thinking of the Japanese tourists who never take their cameras away from their eyes, and, by such uber-documentation, never really experience where they are in time.
    All best, Mary Alice
  • Ah, I'm 100 percent Mac ... I don't think they have put out a $400 notebook, however. Their latest MacBook Pro is pretty slim, but also $1,200. I'll just keep doin' what I do, as it seems to be a good fit. Thanks for all the tips!
  • I have a ASUS Eee 1000 netbook, and it was around $400. It has a battery life (in performance saving mode) of about 9 1/2 hrs. Even in high performance mode it held up on a transatlantic flight. Although I didn't use it the entire time, it gave me a good 5-6 hrs.

    What you can't do on it? Watch movies (it doesn't have a DVD drive), or install any program that requires a disc. It has a proprietary Word/Excel-type program installed. Other than that, I haven't run into any walls about not being able to do everything that I do on larger notebook.

    You may not wish to move from Mac to PC, though. I though Mac was going to be introducing a netbook failrly soon (maybe the already have).
  • So Mary Jo, what notebook did you buy ... ? I'll check it out. What can't you do on it? My MacBook is such a part of me and traveling that I might go through withdrawal leaving her behind!
  • I download photos to my netbook while traveling, and am able to do photo editing as well. (I usually wait on that till I get home, though). Same goes for video and video editing.
  • Ed, what a great idea. Thank you, that would make a huge difference!
  • I still travel globally with my MacBook. No problems at customs/immigration. My stories include both my words and photos, so I need to download my pix .. I don't think you can do that with the notebooks, right? I have a great briefcase (photo here) that I use for my carry-on bag and keep it in there, along with all my reading material, etc. It's heavy, but a good work-out running through airports. I always lose weight after a big trip! I also travel with my Flip Video and Moleskine (red!).
  • I can't answer your question, Lise, but I can ask another one: Would connecting the Blackberry to one of those one-ounce, fold-up keyboards be of benefit?
  • As yet, I haven't travelled out of the country for work but I bought a Blackberry with internet and email capabilities. I'm hoping for domestic trips, I can get by with this. Anyone else use this set up? Granted, it's no good for actual work but I was hoping it would be enough to keep me linked in.
