Hi all, I'm keen to get a very small laptop (or other device) to aid in coding my rails applications whilst I'm on the move. Any recommendations re the smallest laptop/device to do this? (I open to something real small) Cheers

Or go for one of these very small Dell's, they are a bit more expensive but also a tat smaller. Rails install pretty easy on Mac OSX with macports.

Very small at 13" but also great form factor and very light. Plus you get a unix environment and all of the Rails core team develops on macs! What more could you ask for? Oh, and it's only about $1000.

I was thinking of something even slightly more compact, so carry around with you most of the time....I've seen some people using such devices however I'm not sure if they would have been running Window or WindowsCE....

Look at the old Toshiba Porteges...I had one that was 11 or so inches, less than an inch thick. Weighed a little over 2 lbs. It was slower (600Mhz) but you can get faster ones and faster models of the Compaq Evo (same concept). Look on eBay. They make a MacBook look like a tank. --Jeremy On 1/25/07, Greg Hauptmann <email@example.com> wrote: > > wrote: > > > Cheers > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > -- My free Ruby e-book: http://www.humblelittlerubybook.com/book/ My blogs: http://www.mrneighborly.com/ http://www.rubyinpractice.com/
