    Hey Caleb.Great presentation last Thursday.I have a couple of questions:1. What is the URL of that laptop site you were talking about before the presentation? The ones that were supposedly better than DELL?2. In ASP .NET AJAX, what is the preferred way of doing non-postback datagrids that update and are clickable asynchronously? I know you mentioned that putting a datagrid in an UpdatePanel is inadvisable.If you could, send your reply to However, I’ll check back here.I tried clicking on your email but it’s not working for me.

    Thanks for the feedback! I had a great time in Tallahassee. The laptop that a lot of our people are moving towards are the Sagers ( Very powerful notebooks (you can’t even come close to the specs with a Dell XPS and are about $1,000 less than the closest XPS) So far, our guys have been very happy with them.

    As far as the datagrid goes… unless you are going to write a whole lot of code to wire up a whole bunch of client events (in which case I wouldn’t use a datagrid, but maybe a data repeater). The fastest and easiest way to get up and running is to put the datagrid inside of an UpdatePanel.

    My advice is to get up and running, then see what your users use and where your perf areas are. You can flush out a more performant solution while your users are using a working solution with the update panel.

    Hope that help!
