We have a bunch of Dell Latitudes here too. They work very well! My current machine is an Alienware super-fast laptop. You might convince your IT department to get that - since Alienware is now owned by Dell! :)
Anyway, one of Dell's high-end laptops, with at least 1GB of RAM (more preferred - memory is cheap) will do just fine for FrameMaker. I use an external 24" LCD monitor (a Dell 2405) for editing when I am not traveling. On the road, the 17" wide-screen LCD works well. My older Dell D810 had a 15" wide-screen LCD and that was pretty good too. Resolution is 1920 x 1200 on all these screens. Zaeem John Posada wrote: > Hi, Loren...we use Dells. No complaints.
