Subject: Arima notebook users on HUMANIST?

Several colleagues in the U.S. & I are thinking of starting an e-list
for humanities computing involving work on notebook computers, particularly
where multimedia is concerned. Since we incipient founders happen to
have Arima notebook computers, we're particularly interested in finding
others who do because of the hardware issues that come up. These particular
computers are often configured and sold
by Austin Computers, Ergo Computing, and several vendors in Taiwan,
France, and Germany, to name a few other countries. Naturally,
anyone interested in other notebook computers is welcome to respond. The
notebook factor here is tied to additional aspects like classroom use,
mobile use, demonstrations & conference presentations.

If you are interested in a hardware/software forum combining notebook
computing with work in the humanities, please let me know.
