      Hi , Each day I spent around 1.5 hours in train.
      I have 14" old laptop which I use , its big and not comfortable , I was thinking about changing to new UMPC , something like the MSI 10" WIND or something similar (asus eee maybe).

      My question is , anyone here tried this ? is it comfortable ? can you 6 MTT (at least)?


      Thank you.

      I have a 17" laptop with a resolution of 1440*900 and i can put 4 tables on the screen. If i want to play on more, i cant put them together.

      A 10" is very small... My girlfriend just bought an asus eee 8.9" and i think you might can put 2 tables on it, max :)

      maybe playing cascade and not tile ?
      The whole point of laptop is to carry something small so i can easly take it out on the train...

      Most of my friend have this little beast. You might also want to look at the Asus EEPC.

      Can you even get reliable internet access on a train?

      I sometimes play on 15.4" but 4 tiled tables is plenty I think. I'd say that in those 1.5 hours you watch a video, read an article, review some of your sessions, hand history, etc. And then the 10" would be great for the job.

      that's undoubtedly the first time I hear someone referring to a 14" laptop as "big" lol

      as for "not comfortable" yea maybe, if it's old it's likely to have a screen somewhat closer to a square than to a rectangular.. which obviously sucks for multitabling, then.
