Compact Flash and Notebooks

Looking for a notebook (around 1000GPD) for general word processing and digital photos.

Our cameras are Canon which take Compact Flash cards.

The adverts for most notebook PCs seem to state every other type of card apart from CF.

Any idea how to get round this one please?

Also, any feedback on Asus and Gateway machines would be appreciated


PS seem to have duplicated this somehow.......

I can find lots of PCMCIA compact flash cards, but no notebooks with integral CF reader.

Sorry, I should have said, the easy way around this would seem to be to buy a compact flash card reader for the PCMCIA slot in your notebook (all notebooks have them).

Note books have a PCMIA slot and there are PCMIA adaptors for Compct Flask.
Fairly costly though.
A cheaper option is a simple USB multicard readert
hat will easily go into a pocket of a carryall.

Thank you for your replies about CF cards - and readers.

We will make a start at looking at the quality, keyboard and screens of the Asus and Gateway laptops we have seen advertised.

Thanks again
