I'm not sure where to put this post :roll:

For those of you that do J2EE consulting/development/demos, what notebooks + OS are you using?

I'm looking at the G4, ThinkPad and some others (like the new Asus notebooks). I'm a bit worried that Mac OS X does not run Java 1.5.

Any comments?

you can't use a mac OS X notebook if you want to do WebSphere stuff - unfortunately WSAD/Rational App Developer and WebSphere don't yet run on OS X.

thinkpads are great. If i were you I'd get one of those second-gen centrino's with the higher bus speeds - like a thinkpad T43 or a Dell Inspiron 6000.

You'll need 2GB of RAM for Rational /WebSphere v6's development tools though...
