    As a delivery Captain, I have used my HAM radio to
    communicate while sailing to/from the islands.
    I recently purchased a tnc to connect to my ICOM radio for
    digital messages (Pactor) and weather info.
    I'm currently using a borrowed Dell Latitude laptop (at home),
    but I plan/need to buy a laptop soon.
    What has been the experience with those on this list, in using
    laptops on a boat? I'm looking at models in the $2K range.
    I see "marine" grade PC's advertised, but wonder how the less expensive
    non-marine grade will hold up?
    I expect to be in transit with this "system" only about 35 days a year.
    Any suggestions regarding brands, such as Sony, HP, Toshiba, Compaq?
    You can answer off list if you like.
    Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice.
