Laptop computers have found usefulness as portable media devices.

Even refurbished laptops can be used as DVD players, stereos, and recording devices. The mobility and portability of laptops make them very useful in these categories as does the increasing capabilities of the electronics.

Many people are beginning to use their notebooks as portable DVD players.

They can take these mobile devices on airplanes to pass the time as they travel. They can also use these portable notebooks in hotel rooms to provide them with entertainment. Some parents are investing in notebooks to use as entertainment for the children in the backseat with DVDs as the family makes long trips. The ability to refurbish used laptops with these portable DVD drives makes them an inexpensive way to entertain adults and children during their travels.

A notebook computer can also be used as a video phone for notebook conferencing capabilities. Traveling workers can take their portable laptop equipment to other offices as well as their homes and still connect with co-workers and clients. Mobility has become a trend with today's workforce, and notebook computers provide this mobility.

The sound capabilities of notebooks are also making them popular for use as portable music players. With MP3 music becoming more and more popular, even refurbished computers can hold and playback a large number of songs. Various notebook software programs allows for various types of audio. Audio books are also being played on notebooks for the entertainment and even education of the notebook user.

DVD isn't optimal on laptops, I know of many portable DVD players that get a much better battery life from normal use in contrast to a laptop.

Parents giving kids laptops? More than 1/2 of all laptops repaired (opinion) are damaged by customer abuse i.e. dropping etc. I can't even imagine what kids would do to them.

Given convenience, I would have a cell any day over a laptop for communication.

iPods with 20gb HDDs are much more convenient as well. The music is easy to access; there is no navigating through complex menus or program startup time to just play a song.

Volume output on laptops isn't that great either.
