There are a lot of suggestions about such things -- including the use
of substitute fonts -- in the archives of this List. Use the XySearch
form, at http://xywrite.org with
appropriate keywords, and you should find plenty.
As to dedicated use, no-frills "laptops", I seem to recall a
discussion here about some *very* small and light ones that only ran
some basic programs, but could run for a long time on off-the-shelf
type batteries. (The screens on these must be very small.) Whether
the models being mentioned could run Xy, I don't recall. Again, worth
some keyword searches.
