Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based sent us one of their best-selling laptops, the LC2430. We've used it for more than a month with four different distributions and here's what we think about it.

Read again. I called the 1.5 hour battery-life a non-portable.

I know that's what you said, and after your post I have no better understanding of why you think a laptop by all means is nearly non-portable isn't a desktop replacement?

So I guess anybody that disagrees with your ad-hoc categorization of laptops is a contrarian?

No, somebody who seems to take great joy in picking apart everything Eugenia says for a place to disagree is contrarian. But then, I was only asking.

Greater than 8 lbs a marketing mistake? Better tell that to Dell or I'm sure they will welcome your marketing advice. My desktop replacement probably weighs at least 10 lbs and I couldn't be happier.

Please notice, I said I think it's a marketing mistake. As in, it's my opinion that anyone buying a laptop wants to move it some, and a laptop weighing 10lbs is too heavy to do so much more than a well thought out SFF which is much more upgradable.
