Nov 3rd 2010 5:57PM The standard European converter you speak of is actually not standard. It has wider prongs that won't fit in Switzerland or Italy.
You can get thinner pronged converters that are truly "universal" and work all over Europe. I got one with a mobile phone years ago and have kept it in my laptop bag ever since. It has helped all over Europe (including Italy/Switz), Asia, North Africa.

Jul 7th 2010 11:25AM I bought a factory refurbished Ideapad S10 Netbook from Lenovo's online outlet in the US and took it on a grueling 3-month trip stuffed in my backpack with zero protection. It ran like a champ. With 160GB hard drive it was more than enough for my photos, videos and music. The keyboard is quality and it comes with XP.
The monitor connection died after my 3-month trip was over. I happened to be while I I was on a separate trip in France before the 1yr warranty period was over. The local Lenovo rep had it fixed in less than a week at zero charge and zero shipping cost. I think company reputation for backing their product is also an important factor to consider.
May 6th 2010 3:47AM and don't forget "skype-to-go"
I have a local number in the US, provided free by skype, that I can call from my cell phone.
This number bridges me into the skype network allowing me to make any international calls using my skype credit as if I were in front of a computer.
