The BlueZebra "Panorama" is not for everyone but if you are a professional who needs mobility, a
BIG screen and a 10 Key pad then the Panorama really is your only choice in the market today.
As a professional I personally don't mind the weight (just over 9lbs.) so much as I need and like having a large screen, 3D capabilities, best sound in a laptop and a full keyboard. I've discovered with the Panorama that my productivity is much better than a regular laptop especially when I have to "work the numbers". The 10 key pad is invaluable in my experience. The only time my productivity takes a hit is when I get lost in the gorgeous look of one of my favorite DVDs while working and lose focus...
Though the battery life is only about 2 hours on the Panorama, I still prefer the workstation version of the Intel P4 processor 3.06GHz basically because it always is working at full speed and I like things to be as fast as possible because our time is precious.
The DVD playback on this thing is just awesome and when appropriate I sometimes will play through the integrated sound system which includes a small sub-woofer, producing the best sound of any laptop I have ever heard. I still prefer to listen through Bose head phones but occasionally it's nice to not wear a headset and just enjoy the Panorama's integrated sound at a lower volume.
As professionals, our most valuable commodity is our time. I personally like everything in order on my systems, well organized and fully configured and personalized so I can get right to work without delay. I like to treat every client the way I'd like to be treated so every BlueZebra laptop has an "Executive Configuration" or "ExecConfig" for short. Basically, this is where WinXP Pro is configured to the ninth degree so that you don't have to do it. The ExecConfig consists of the following special features, unique to BlueZebra alone:
Because BlueZebra is a smaller organization we are taking out a special insurance policy covered by AIG which guarantees that 24/7 tech support and 3 year depot warranty service will be carried out on every laptop whether we stay in business or not. Of course we are planning on being around for a long time but I feel our professionals deserve the peace of mind that comes with an insurance policy of this kind.
