I don't know. I wouldn't let their reputation get the best of you.
Plenty of other companies know what they're doing (Phillips Magnavox
comes to mind).

Eh? How would you ever travel with a laptop if you're afraid to take
it in the car?

I don't *leave* my laptop in the car (well, actually, I do at work,
but I wouldn't need to, I'm just lazy; I certainly don't overnight),
and it cost me far less than some of the dedicated mp3-player things
out there.  What's more, if I bring my 802.11B card along, I can
have music *and* networking... ;^>

I agree that a laptop is totally inadequate for any of those
non-vehicular things.
