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.
