Check out this hot laptop and some add-ons.
|T-6815 GATEWAY LAPTOP
Upside: Price and style
Out of the box, one of the first things you'll notice are the front panel hook-ups for audio/video. Searching for them on the side can be a hassle, especially on a dark or crowded flight.
Big news here is the slick style and the fantastic price. The black casing, larger-than-usual touchpad and great guts make this a laptop to consider for the road.
The model we tried had the following specs:Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 processor (1.5GHz)
14.1-inch WXGA display

160GB 5400 RPM SATA hard drive
1.3 Megapixel Webcam

5-in-1 Digital Media Reader
Integrated 802.11n wireless
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
Microsoft Works 8.5 The T-Series models start as low as $749, and at that price you could get two. My only tweak would be the 5 lb, 5 oz weight but that's what ultra portables are made for.
Downside: Zingy hands Plug this into the USB plug and then slide your fingers through the holes of this device for a quick on-the-go, stress-relieving mini massage. There are rubber nodules that also address your palms, not to mention the muscles between the index finger and the thumb. This device is a must-have for all BlackBerry users. On the flipside, it should be noted that after use your hands may tingle a bit, so you might want to wait a few minutes before jumping back into action.
Downside: Not for long-time use Attach this device to your index finger via a velcro strap and use it as a mouse. The left button, right button and scroll wheel are all activated by your thumb. While this is a great novelty and quite innovative, it's hard to imagine typing a legal brief with it. The Finger Mouse might be a great escape from the old mouse or touchpad, but it's probably best for general tasks like reading email or scanning the Web. Site to See:
