www.thetechstop.net So… you like the size and price of a netbook, but you’re not overly thrilled by its anemic power and surprisingly short battery life. — You’re not alone… Though the netbook craze has been a collection of some great, not-so-great, and downright ugly design, there have emerged a few universally felt notions about netbooks: First, they’re good for word processing, websurfing and email… but not much else. Second, for such small computers, they’re 3-4 hours of battery life is a puzzlement. Well Gateway might have something for those who look at netbooks and say, ‘meh.’. Their new EC1400 series of notebooks has the size, weight, style and price of a netbook, but the power of a notebook. With a 11.6″ screen, 3GB of memory, dual-core CPU, 320GB hard drive and an incredible 8-hour battery life, this might be the cure for your netbook blues. www.Twitter.com

After some experimentation I finally got a pretty solid collection of things to bring on the road.
Not on the picture but also brought on most trips:
- Canon Eos 400D with 28mm f/1.8 EF lens (used to take this photo)
- X60 tablet power supply or MacBook Air power supply
- Kata SLR/laptop backpack which can contain the above

This is the Timbuk2 bag I take to shows with me. Basically anything that is not an instrument or an amp (or the laptop) goes in here. For shows with Honor by August, Juniper Lane and Rotoscope. Does not count the toys on the bass pedal board.
Incase Hardshell Case

The Incase Hardshell Case for 15" MacBook Pro. I chose the Incase over Speck because I liked the rubberized, matte surface, and the build quality seemed sturdier (but that’s purely conjecture). It snapped on easily, and a nice touch was the battery power meter button passthrough. The "clips" that secure the Incase to the laptop are more subtle than on the Speck, but I’m not a fan of how Incase embosses its own logo on the lid (whereas the Speck advertises only on the bottom piece).
My main complaint about the Incase was the right rear lower corner would catch on the MBP screen edge when I opened it up, making a teeth-gnashing snapping sound. I ended up filing down the edge a tiny bit, and now it opens without catching or rubbing. For something that costs so much and brags about how finely its engineered, though, this seems like a big flaw.

I happened to have four laptops at home this weekend, and when I set my PowerBook on top of the two that were already on the table, it occurred to me that it would be fun to add the MacBook Pro to the top of the stack and snap a picture.
From the bottom up, this is a Sony Vaio I have for work, an old iBook with dead battery and flaky wireless I’m setting up as a test database server, my 12" PowerBook, and a 15" MacBook Pro I have for a few days of testing.
