Hi Barry, I agree that two laptops aren't necessary. It's a redundancy thing.

If you have a laptop and extrenal drive and the laptop fails in the field, your workflow goes due south in a handbasket. The second laptop is a safety blanket - just in case.

Regarding the P2 Store, I agree that it's a better solution for run&gun.

Yes, it's more robust than you're typical Dell laptop.

But the big advantage over a laptop in a stressful situation?...

Boot time. ;)
