I currently have a nice vista machine, but I'm looking for another laptop just for web browsing and basic tasks, I've used clamshells, and modded them ;), I have also done some mods on iBook g3 Snow books, painting hard drive etc., I was wondering if a clamshell would be sufficiant (I'm fine with 802.11b) or a snow book, or any other mac laptop, I'm looking for somthing durable and with good batterylife.  I just would like to know what you guys would think is best for that purpas.
