Greetings all....

Yes... I've done some searching and reading already.  I'm looking for some fresh ideas based on the following needs:

Leaving on a 6 week round the country road trip May 24th.

Will use LR4 and Silver Effex Pro.

Will back up/store on external device

In a good- better- best rating, I don't need best. (although I'm not afraid of spending money for it when needed)

I don't need a calibrated monitor.  On the road I'll be posting to flickr and blogs and such.  Heavy lifting can and will be done at home on my desktop when we get home.

I don't need real fast or cutting edge....

Computing needs other than post processing pictures are minimal.....

Size and weight are secondary considerations.

Budget: Under 2K (top of the line) with a target of 1500 usd (for that really good system).

So that is what I'm working with.  I'm not much into the technical side of computers and I'm not tied into a brand or system.  I'm not interested in a Mac.

Thanks for your time.
