Hey guys! Thanks for the replies!

Well, I am interesting primarily in DSO imaging. I have a pretty fast desktop PC for processing so I don't want to spend a ton of cash on the laptop. I don't really like working on them anyway so it would only be used for this application. I did go to Best Buy the other day looking over the models on display to see what I could get for $400-$500. The answer is, not much. Even if I was to spend a couple hundred more I would only be getting 128-256gb SSD. Really?!? I have that much storage in my iPad!!! I'm still not sure if a laptop is the way to go. With that said, I have been looking at the ZWO ASIair as an alternative. I do worry about the WiFi connection as a possible fail point though unless the ASIair would continue to correct tracking without being connected to the iPad. With a laptop I would be hard-wired to the mount. *shrug*
