I'd like some advice about which laptop to buy for a 4-month world record breaking expedition across Australia. The laptop has to have a long battery life, be powerful enough to operate video editing, digital imaging and web design software and still be robust enough to stand up to a few months on the road. Any advice?
"kept in a van", then depending on what part of Australia the expedition is taking part across, you will need to consider climatic and environment changes. This can make quite a difference in the functioning of the laptop.I would suggest that you contact someone like the National Geographical in London for advice, as to what their expeditions use.
