I'm planning to invest in a very thin/lightweight laptop for site surveys.
Atleast 2 USB interfaces
Below 1.5 Kg (around 2.5-2.7 lbs)
4 GB RAM (would really prefer 8Gb tho)
No bling bling laptop, its for warehous/office site surveys... need to look abit proffesional
Currently interested in Lenovo X1..its quite expensive tho.
Anyone got any good recommendation / tips?
You may want to consider any number of tablet machines however a guy has written about one he is using you may want to read more http://www.wifikiwi.com/wireless/using-the-asus-eee-slate-ep121-for-site-surveys/
Now that is a slick blog there. I have one of those tablets and they are indeed pretty slick. The only other drawback is the fact that it doesn't have a dual band radio. So with it, you're stuck to surveying only the 2.4 GHz band. If that is all you are concerned about, it is certainly an option!
Looks interesting, thanks..
We have spoken about converting a baby carrying thingie (dont know the word for it) and remake it for a wireless laptop use... seems like this guy is on the right track
