Hi,

I tried to look for topics about netbooks, but none of them had an answer to my question: anyone here is using Trados (2007-2009) on a 10-inch netbook? I read somewhere that some applications don't run in smaller resolutions (below 1024*768), which is the case for 10" netbooks as they have a XXXX*600 resolution. Besides, the minimal specs required in the Trados 2009 page is 1280*1024...

Are you working on this type of computer? Is it working fine?

10" display for full-time work? Sep 5, 2011

Not a direct answer to your question but:
Just try to imagine yourself looking at the 10" display for 5 or even 10 hours a day and reading tiny characters. Characters are just tiny.
I would connect a 22" monitor for everyday work.
To my eyes, 10" is good for occasional web surfing only.

No problem Sep 5, 2011

I'm running Trados 07 and 09 on a netbook and have no major issues with it. I use my netbook every time I spend some time in my home country, which is usually three times a year with a minimum duration of a month and three months tops.

At the beginning of the year I was home for 3 month, working on a 100,000 word project in Trados 09. The only problem is that you can't really see Workbench at the same time as Tag Editor. You need to go back and forth. Other than that I had no problems whatsoever.

Occasional work, actually Sep 5, 2011

Thanks for your reply ; I should have mentioned it but this would be for occasional work when on business trip. I have a much bigger screen on my professional computer

Thank you! Out of curiosity: what is your netbook's model?

Samsung Sep 5, 2011

It's a Samsung N140.

I really like it because it's so light and it fits even in my handbag. Except for the fact that I miss the CD player, I'd always go for a netbook again. Sooo convenient

Hola...

I ran Trados 2007 (Workbench, TagEditor, etc.) and Studio 2009 with an Acer Aspire One for a long time. Works fine, only a bit slow.

Now running them on a Macbook Air 13" with VMWare installed... pure bliss.

Good luck.

David

Trados 2011-2014, resolution 1024*600 Feb 14, 2014

Hi,

I would like to rise this topic. My question is: anyone here is using Trados (2011-2014) on a 10-inch netbook with resolution such as 1024*600? Of course, not on the permanent base - probably, on business trips etc.
Does it work?
Thank you in advance.

I'd like an update on this subject - Trados Studio on netbooks and ultrabooks May 15, 2016

These answers are from 5 years ago; I think there are many more options now. Does anyone have advice on what would be the best solution to run Trados Studio (at least 2011) on a netbook/ultrabook built for travel mobility?

Thank you in advance.
