Hi Walt,

On the subject of laptops, I just got a pretty good deal on a Toshiba Portege 660CDT laptop, 150 mHz Pentium, two batteries, Panasonic CD-ROM Drive w/cable & PCMCIA controller card, 1.44 floppy, external MS mouse, headset w/mic, already loaded with Windows 98, MS Office 2000 and much more. This laptop was four (4) years old, but looks and works great. OK! So what did I pay for it? Placed a bid on eBay and got all this for only $306.99 plus $10.00 shipping.

Therefore, deals are out there, just have to be patient and wait till one comes up. I bought this one especially for the prime purpose of having my astronomy software (w/red scr) with me at Star Parties or other outings. This paltop would also run the software you would like to run the DSC,s.
