I have a laptop. I don't carry it with me wherever I go, because
whatever I need to do on the internet, I can do on the phone. Including
remote connection to my server. (connectbot). Besides, I don't need
some $7.50/hr questionable documented worker getting close to my truck
and all it's electronics, most of which are secured. the laptop would
just be 'laying about'. No thanks.
Besides, I don't recall a question being asked. I don't remember anyone
saying I had to give up one for the other, and I wouldn't do that.
the subject of the conversation is what recommendations Alan could
receive regarding Android OS based smartphones.

I don't have any problem with that. If I opened up my phone, I could
also use it as an Access Point for the laptop, so only one bill.
