What do you think?
Just in case you need to check your email or the stock ticket in the middle of a bumpy decent?
Dont see a point, computers can wait till after the ride i think.
Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas
If all you need is E-mail, and you don't mind the screen size, I'd consider a slider phone like the Sprint Mogul, T-Mobile Wing, or a Blackberry-esque phone like a T-Mobile Dash or a Motorola Q. Even a HTC Universal is big enough to have a VGA screen, but small enough to fit somewhere on you.
If you are biking, the bulk of a laptop likely will get in the way, so a cellphone may be the way to go unless you need a big screen or a function only provided by a laptop OS.
If you can afford one,(Toughbooks are SPENDY!!) and have a way to carry it comfortably,They are probably the most durable lappy out there...But they are HEAVY!!!!
The Panasonic ToughBook is the lappy the US Military uses out in the field,That should say something.
