I've previously bought three or four laptops and hardly ever used them except on the odd conference, holiday or training.
I'm now expecting to want to use a laptop/tablet on one day out about once a week. Yes, I'll be going to football by train. I don't want to be talking football with other fans all the time!
The journey times it will be from one hour to three hours. I didn't realise you could get from London to Newcastle so quickly nowadays!
I'm not planning to do client work but I would be doing marketing: my website, newsletters, blogs, etc.
I suppose battery life will be the main issue. I suppose I can tether it to my mobile phone but most trains on main routes seem to have wifi nowadays I think. If I could get something really cheap that does the job fine but otherwise I am happy to spend the money as long as I don't get too carried away. I realise that most of the time it will just be keeping my mobile phone company.
I've liked the look of the following machines that can be used as laptops or tablets:
Microsoft Surface Pro
HP ENVY x2 11-g000ea 11.6" Touchscreen Convertible Laptop
Does anybody have any other advice or suggestions?
