Cynic - thanks for your feedback :-) RAM upgrades are available. Hard drive may also be possible. However, since RISC OS and windows share the disc space, rather than it being "blocked off", 40Gb is actually quite spacious. I have a gaming laptop here (games being very large, more so than application software) and that is fine with a 30Gb hard drive. Obviously I don't keep my entire games collection installed on it, but I can fit plenty of stuff on there.

AW/Robert - I think you underestimate just HOW expensive a pure RISC OS laptop would be, and also how underpowered it might be compared to a Centrino system. I suppose an Iyonix-esque laptop might be sweet, but I suspect you'd be looking at around 2000ukp a machine for that to be viable. Let's hope I'm wrong, but I think right now, VRPC offers an extremely flavorsome route to portability!
