|Looking for a laptop.....|
|12:58:27 Jan 5th 08 - Mr. Architect:|
Ok, so I'm looking for a new laptop. I have been searching for a couple weeks now and have found a few options, but I'm hoping there is some place to go to find it cheaper and/or better built that I just don't know of and/or can't find.

I'm looking for specific laptop deals, with a price and a web page attached rather than more stuff to search for.

Don't go Dell. Thats the only advice I can give.
|13:46:29 Jan 5th 08 - Mr. Architect:|
Any specific reason why not?

A couple, mu bro bought a Dell laptop recently, about a week after he bought it, it started randomly shuting down, he sent it back and got a replacement. That one started randomly turning off too I believe, not sure what he did after that, but he currently has a working laptop.
Also I am siting in front of a Dell desktop, it's old, and dell have made it so it can't be customised or upgraded in anyway whatsoever.
So therefore if I buy something I perpously try to advoid(bad spelling) Dell and look for someone else, so therefore as a fellow visual utoppian I am giving you some advice from my bad experiences.

Intel Centrino Duo Core 2 Duo T5200 1.73GHz - 17" WXGA+ - 2GB DDR2 SDRAM - 160GB - DVD-Writer (DVD-RAM/±R/±RW) - Wi-Fi, Fast Ethernet - Windows Vista Home Premium - Onyx Blue Metallic
It looks fantastic apart from that part, well done Spoon ^^

Ahh, yes, nice find! I shall add it to my list. And yeah, if you can find XP, it is definitely preferred, but I know it is difficult now, so I'll probably have to put up with Vista...

HP Pavillion with AMD Turion 64 X2 @2 GHz, 15.4"LCD, 2 GB RAM, 250 GB hard disk, 1GB Video Memory (geez, 1 GB!!!! ), has algo gigabit ethernet. Comes with Vista Home Premium.
If I had the money, I'd buy it as soon as it is avaiable :p
btw, it's going to be almost impossible to find a computer with windows XP nowadays, your best hope is to enter the manufacturer page and customize your computer.

Could try Gateway

I managed to get a pc with no windows on it, which allowed me to install XP. My parents have Vista, so I know both. All I can tell you is that you should really really really try to get XP :)

Hey buddy, there's a pretty new thing now, intel quad core, It's like either 40% faster with same energy consumption or 60% less energy consumption with same speed than previous generation intel core 2.
|00:54:07 Jan 7th 08 - Mr. Architect:|
Wow, good to know. I think I may just put it off for a bit then. Thanks for the info.

About the Laptop...
Get a laptop with a Geforce 7950!
AMD Quad is so much better than Intel
2 Gigs of ram is always good
100 gigs of space is nice.
