so what all is out there in the realm of these smaller laptops. looking for something to take with me this coming season. have a Dell desktop...not sure if communication between the 2 is anything to be worried about these days. right now, Toshiba's Portege (R500), and Apple's Macbook are the front runners. But I'm a noob. Educate me. Now that I think about it...is it a pain to transfer music/ pictures from a Windows platform to a Mac?
