      Your point is well taken--I've cooked my legs with laptops before, and that's just no fun. The G3 ought to keep up with the 450MHz PIII laptop it'd be replacing, and that's good enough. (Anything that can play movies on a plane is, by definition, Good Enough) Time to budget for the mid-range one, I think. (Pity they don't take dual batteries, which is the nicest thing about the HP I've got now, though that second battery's at the expense of the D
