Summary

Here are the key points to remember from this chapter:

  • Buying a mobile computer can seem daunting, but it's not really.

  • Determine for yourself what you care about most.

  • Worry about weight, ruggedness, and battery life in a laptop, not cuteness.

  • You can buy a Windows mobile notebook from a variety of sources including the manufacturer.

  • It's very convenient to shop for a mobile laptop online, although you might want to visit a store to handle one before you buy it.

  • Wi-Fi is the technology used to enable mobile computing.

  • You might need to read specifications with some care, but you should be able to tell if a notebook computer has integrated Wi-Fi. If you are planning to use your laptop for mobile computing, don't buy one that doesn't come with Wi-Fi already onboard.

  • Laptops based on the Intel Centrino mobile technology come pre-equipped with Wi-Fi.
