1. Some people suggest different laptops, such as Toshiba, NEC, Compaq.
Some said they did not have good experience of setting up Solaris on laptop
and/or PC. Some recommend buying Sparc book.

2. Most applications compiled and run on Sparc need to be recompiled to run
on intel Solaris for PC. Sparc is Big Endian and Intel is Little Endian.

I think I've put off the idea for now.

Again, thanks you all...
