The HP's I mentioned are very useable as laptops.

The Mac Portable, in common with all other Macs, is missing one essentail 
feature that the Amstrad PPC, HP110, HP Portable+ and my older laptops, 
Tandy M100, Epson HX20 and Epson PX8 all have (as do some other laptops I 
don't own). I am sure you can guess what that is ;-)
