Anyone tried to edit photos on a laptop during a flight? I am time poor and it would be good if I could edit during a 2 hour flight.

Unless you have a screen calibration device to calibrate your screen each time with a laptop, there isn't much point in "editing" on a laptop. This is because most laptop screens are very contrasty and with warm colors. What you're seeing is not what the image truly is. It will only look good on your screen not others that you may share with via web or email. You'll also end up with issues if you print "edited" photos from a non-calibrated screen.

I recently bought a netbook and won't even try to get a photo developing program on it because of the whole quality of the displayed image on the screen. Relax for those 2 hours. I would not want to have my head turned downward at a laptop screen for 2 hours. Laptops are very non-ergonomical!
