Build test lab with laptops only?

    Could I build a good test and training lab of computers
    using laptops only?

    Could I do RIS stuff with laptops? Bottom line..could
    I do any kind of "mucking" around and learning with a
    laptop based network as well as I could using desk
    tops?

    I want to build a training lab... but I need something
    VERY mobile and easy to move around.

    Advice?

    he..he.. having a bit of fun.

    just don't get too carried away with your test lab. because, when you go
    to take your exams you are going to be a smart ass and answer creativley
    and you going to fail.

    keep the "real world" in the "real world" and keep the text books in the
    classrooms.

    good luck

    Sure you could.

    RIS with laptops... , you should double check and make
    sure you have ALL of the correct drivers FIRST (Microsoft
    signed... of course).

  7. Also ask at the testcenter for a laptop if not then your exam don't count
    :)

    For real now... There will be no problem to setup a testlap with laptops if
    the have the mimimum reqierements to run the software.

    True.... but Im not made of money. Hence I didn't know
    if I should go the ;laptop route..... or just get
    compact desktops and easily moveable LCD displays.

    Thoughts?

    I'll be kind, yes the newer laptops and even laptops from 2001 (toshiba's
    that I know of for sure ) can be RIS'd, but not too spoil it, if they don't
    have a PXE card, you can use an *.exe that you will learn about from 70-215
    that allows you to RIS without a PXE compliant card in any machine.

    if you have read 215 and don't know what it is, well I suggest looking at
    the book again.

    Even if you had a computer with a non-pxe compliant nic
    all you need to do is build a remote installation boot
    disk.

    Actually to answer seriously (I am overdue for this month) Microsoft during
    their TS2 seminars run comepletely off laptops. They usually run a server,
    vmware, and a workstation or two.

    Don't waste money on expensive ass laptops for your lab. And you can work
    with just one monitor. Get a damn KVM switch.
