You guys are way ahead of me.  I'll settle for reality!
I live in a high-rise Manhattan building and must do my satellite operation
by carrying all the needed equipment out to the promenade behind the
building next to the East River (2 miles due north of the UN building). 
I'm looking for a way to lighten the load, and the netbook looks promising.
N3TL even reports that the Yaesu CAT to USB cables he bought worked without
installing new drivers.  That's big  because I don't know how to "map"
another computer's CD drive into a netbook to read any new drivers!

Tnx for the ideas.
