The Itronix XC6250 P133 40MB 1.6GB 33.6 Laptop is a pig at 15 pounds, but it has all you need to use as a second computer for surfing in another room or out on the patio. Just pop in a PCMCIA NIC and install linux, or hook up an external CD and go for the full blown windows 95/98!

I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
