I've used just about all my mobile computers on the plane:
- Laptop (all sorts of screen sizes)
- Convertible tablet PC
- Ultra-mobile PC (Samsung Q1 Ultra)
- OQO handheld computer
- iPod touch (do you consider this a mobile computer?)
My conclusion is that laptop manufacturers should make a business computer that's just for the frequent flier.
- This device would have a really wide, but very short screen. This way, when the person in front of you reclines back, you're still able to see your screen and type away.
- Speaking of the screen, it should have a security screen so that your neighbors can't see what's on your screen (you can buy these filters, but why not build it into your notebook?)
- It should have a full keyboard so that you can type easily.
- It should have a built-in cup holder so that you can drink and work at the same time.
- It also needs a spill-proof keyboard. (crumb proof would also be nice)
- It should have an illuminating keyboard. (it's so hard to find laptops that have this - unless you get a Mac)
- Battery life should exceed 8 hours. (and yes, it should be a user-changeable battery Apple!)
