Hi All

I am new to this, so bear with me!!

I am getting rid of my desktop PC with the below spec, and I am going travelling for a couple of years in Motorhome, and need a Good laptop, with a very good battery life, and if poss one I can charge of 12V system!

THe laptop will be used for internet (wifi & mobile) photoshop, picture editing, and camcorder video editing, maybe some web design/ page updating, and music, to listen and also I use the Cubase music system, i'm a musician who records on seperate digital desk and then will upload tracks and edit them on laptop. I have a sepearet extenal hard drive to store most of music and pic's but want a fast running and good RAM machine, good HHD bonus.. but the main thing is battery life too, as this is very important.

I have looked on which at two samsung laptops R522 or Q320, that seem pretty good..

my budget is not highest for spec i need but max around £700 can be pushed couple of hundred more if really required.

Please help!??

would not worry too much about battery life as you can run/charge laptop with a cheap 12volt 150 watt inverter via the cigarette lighter or in more modern vehicles the 12v socket. maplins or similar retail outlet about £20

Samsungs have good battery life.

I have a Q210 and it does what it says on the tin.
