Re: Alternative to a laptop?

Or maybe the Mini would be good alternative? Just heard they now go  
2GHz Core 2 Duo.
Just the size of a battery driven Marshall practice baby amp. I'd  
like to research if you can set up system and software to not use a  
computer monitor. If that's possible the Mini would be the most  
compact looper. I don't think I'd need to see the graphics if looping  
with Mobius. It depends on if you can set up the box to do all this  
on power-up: load the BootCamp system Windows XP and load the Bidule  
session with Mobius. It's a scaring thought going to a gig with no  
screen monitor because there might come up an issue that needs an  
instant fix. Maybe you could keep a 12" flat screen in your pocket or  
so? Hm... regarding keyboard I think this box has bluetooth which  
means you can program it with an iPhone? (is that correct, Mark)
