Hi there,

I'm looking at a bunch of the current low-end deals they're offering, and
I'm always stuck on something. What degree of the contrast ratio &
luminence metrics are required for outdoor use.

I'm not talking about something with the sun directly shining on the screen.
I'd probably have to go with something mil-spec for that :) 

But I *would* like to program on my deck, even on a bright day.

Is that possible these days?

THANKS!!!!

You may want to check out Fujitsu, especially if you could use a pen
computer. The older Stylistic series could easily handle the outdoors. The
ST 3500 is supposed to be one of the best.
