Seems like a good idea to test laptops on the beach, until you get to the beach. Where it's cold. And windy. And raining. And suddenly you're more worried about your camera and laptop breaking than seeing which screen is best for using outdoors. Still, I soldered on - and you should've seen how happy the shopkeeper was when I bought that Cornetto! Definitely the first Cornetto he's sold in 2008. Made his week.
