I am giving up on the laptop, because I\'ve found an interesting 1U short-body rackmount computer. the Sleekline 1800 1.8 GHZ, 40 and 120GB ATA133 drives, up to 2 GB DDR RAM, the only catch is the single PCI port, they actually custom cut the back panel, and a may need to add few other engineering bits and pieces (but the total cost for the customization is well under $100.)
Kevin at Tascam has heartily endorsed the card, so I\'m going with it. 20 lbs plus LCD display/keyboard (that\'s 32 KG for those of you on metrics [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] ) for what should be a kick-booty machine.
I\'ll let you know how it works out, the main issue now (beside getting it to work...) should be the case/transport. I\'d like tp be able to remove the top of a box, prop up the display. plug it in and start Gig-ging.
Anybody know a really innovative case maker?
