Jason is right on this. It _is_ possible to buy a laptop that will not
serve the needs of the student. Remember that more and more students
are listening to podcasts, watching video, running CALI Lessons as well
as recording classes on their laptops, and using the latest generations
of applications. All this requires a bit of horsepower. Also ebooks
for the law school world are looming on the horizon. While I haven't
looked a laptops in a while, I'd think that a mid-range processor, lots
of RAM, 40-80 gig hard drive, and DVD/CD-RW combo would be a good choice.
