Q: What is the favorite notebook brand with Japanese developers?
Toughbook business laptops are marketed with ‘Let’s note’ brand in Japan. This ultra-light notebook has a surprisingly large share amongst Japanese developers. If you are looking for light (940g~1.5kg. 2lbs~3.3lbs), tough (water resistant) and long battery life (>6hours) notebook, it’s the answer.
Well. Why Toughbook? Japanese people tend to move with public transport. So, heavy notebooks are real pain. I think it’s a very good choice for every Asian people, especially for women.
Probably they should use another brand name than ‘Toughbook’. They should have read Al Ries.
Coincidentally, Asiajin founders are using same made-to-order burgundy-red Toughbooks:)
