I too would love to see the manuals in PDF form, since I also often
use my laptop.  I suspect that the reason for the unavailability of
the manuals in this form is that it would cut significantly into the
sales of the (paper) manuals?  Thus, even though we are probably back 
to talking about pricing (!) I would like to hear from Stata Corp on
this.
