    when looking (at laptops) also keep in mind, what are you comfortable with as far as keyboards go. I personally HATE the numbers across the top of the keyboard simply because I love the 10-key on the side, I am much quicker and more accurate. I actually went and purchased the 10-key adapter and mouse to go with mine. I use my desktop 98% of the time but the laptop is nice when I go on vacation (but still work remotely). I also have Vista and have had no issues, but like the others have mentioned, you should double check the job requirements.

    Food for thought

    Is it possible to get a good laptop for under $1000 (like, around $500) to provide the capabilities for remote coding?

    I paid $425 on sale at best buy for mine about 5 months ago. I haven't had any problems. It is a Toshiba. I love it. It also had Vista on it.

    Make sure you have a minimum of 1 GB Ram to run multiple applications at one time. Many PCs have duo core processors now and even quad core processors which helps to keep your speed up a bit if you are working on productivity with a remote position. Are you wanting an hourly or productivity position?

    WOW I am so glad many of you spoke up about Vista. I will diffently be buying a laptop beginning of the year and I won't be afraid now, considering what all you had to say. Thank you all !!!!

    I really don't much about doing remote coding, so I am not sure...but hourly sounds better.

I would be leary about trying to buy a system and it not work with the program of the company you are working for. It might cause a lot of grief for you or them. I have 2 programs I code in, both are web based, and both are clearly different from each other. If you have a computer, I think I'd find the job first, then ask what their requirements are, or look at some requirements from job postings about the system they are requiring.
    I just spoke with someone from Maxim and he told me not to get a computer with VISTA...He said to get a computer with Windows XP
