Re: Laptops as servers?
One thing I know to watch for is periodic battery replacement. It turns out that running a laptop with a battery in it with AC on all the time will slowly erode the life of the battery. I have no way to know how long you can do this before the batteries won't do what you were expected. Maybe a battery replacement every couple years is all it takes. The other is that the I/O on laptops sucks compared to PCI. For things that aren't major traffic handlers (like your DNS and DHCP examples) this is not a hit. Do any of the O/Ss out there get full rate out of a 100bT PC card? jerry
