They always want you to do the work when they can peer over your shoulder and tell you what to do.

Sounds like a good reason to buy one that can be your own!

Sure made my eyes water!
HP might be an option if you remember to boot up before going in to your meeting as it takes half an eon to get going. They have some very nice ones, mine (a Pavillion dv5) isn't one of the more expensive but still good to work on. And you get a delete key too!

The one thing I do miss is a backlit keyboard, an optional extra on many laptops, but sadly not the dv5.
