My very elderly Armada 1700 laptop (250 mhz, 512 megs memory, win 98)
is getting very tired. The floppy drive is about done (replaced 2x
already) and the gigantic 40 gig harddrive is full...lol. Its been a
very good machine for the type of field use that I do, but its time to
get something else. Ive used the old girl for the past 15 yrs with
absolutely no issues, other than the battery pack died about 14 yrs
ago..but I generally simply plug it into the wall anyways when using
Ive been offered either a Dell E6400 XFR or a
General Dynamics/ Itronics VR-2, 2.0GHZ Toughbook
I can buy either of them for $50 out the door. One of my
surplus./recyling places offered them to me last Friday.
Anyone have any experience with either unit/brand?
