7 I'm looking at their Gemini 17", which you've found is too big. In my case,
8 portability is less important than a big screen for my slowly, inexorably
9 deteriorating vision (glaucoma, in case you were wondering). This workstation
10 has a 27" curved screen at 1920x1020, which is very fine but it's upstairs :)
12 The laptop may also stand in as a sort of superior tablet, especially if I can
13 find a Kindle program to read books on it. I've seen the Kindle Cloud Reader
14 suggested, but it may not be usable with all titles. Or I could boot Windows
15 just for that purpose - I think I have a disc here somewhere...
