Well the deal was that I'll put money in, in return for being able to use it for work when we're away from home.... But she gets to set it up how she wants + I'm not allowed to put any stickers on it...
We've been together long enough that we can probably make this arrangement work with only minimal arguing.
To be honest I'm also quite keen on it being fairly slim/light, so sure we can find some sort of compromise. Will have a look at those Dells now.
@JB I intermittently have huge amounts of data to deal with, but depends what I'm editing. Being realistic though, I'm not going to be attempting to edit anything major on it. But the ability to put 100gb or so on it now and then probably makes a 500gb drive essential. I've got a fast external drive though so suspect I'd just use that.
