A laptop has some nice features, Gary has done such a good selling job that if I didn't own an MPP I'd probably use a laptop. But......... knowing what I know now and having owned an MPP for 2 years I prefer the MPP.
I use a foot pedal to turn pages and never use the touch screen at a gig. IT also has a feature called "record repeats and cuts" /"play repeats and cuts" that allow you to arrange multiple sheet songs in such a way that you never have to turn back a page, but instead just keep going forward all with the use of a foot pedal, no different from a sustain pedal on a piano.

If my MPP were to fail I can still use the proprietary FreeHand software that's installed on my laptop to view sheets stored on the MPP.

No question the MPP must be a great little gadget. My point is just that Virtmus pretty much does what the MPP does and you can do extra stuff on a laptop.

As they say, 6 of one and half a dozen of the other

Yes Scott, I agree, its pretty much what I have been saying, or trying to say, both things are excellent tools and do different things and some similar things. Its what suits an individual that matters. I think the OP has got a good choice to investigate...the E80 with its inbuilt capacity for reading notation, a laptop using something like Virtmus, or a notation/sheet music display device like the MPP.
