    Which laptop would you buy ?

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....&skuId=6717939 or http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...115-138&depa=3

    If anyone knows of a better (spec's/quality) LT in this price range feel free to jump in

    Not really an expert about laptops but isn't Centrino the one to get? They still don't have ddr 400 for laptops?

    me- i am very biased. i like toshiba laptops esp with the dvd r/w +- features. if i had to do it over... i would do the same.

    as far as prices go- try google's froogle for price comparison. i have also been told many retailers sell discounted prices on ebay.

    If you live on batteries they are, plus they're pretty powerful for the 1.5/1.6/1.7/1.8ghz they have. Only the top A64 & P4's beat them

    That looks like a nice LT but it's $500 more for better sound & 17" display, plus I can't find one for sale in the US.

    I agree, I have a pretty new Toshiba A60 S166 but I'm giving it to my son for school. Like I always do in great FastGame fashion when my son gets my stuff then I get something better Since I'm on the road alot in motels with highspeed net I want to game online. The Toshiba gaming LT cost a bunch of $$$, they do have great displays(high end models) but is it worth the extra $$$ ?

    Anyway after searching the net for the LT egghead recommends I ran across some hardcore LT forums The COMPAL CL56 seems to be very popular and quite a game LT. The eMachine 6811 is also a killer LT but I guess the display hinge is known to crack on the eMachines....

    I like this COMPAL CL56 but I'm worried about the SXGA+ display and the 1400x1050 32-bit Resolution. Movies & games would look nice but would I be able to read text at that res on 15" ?

    I was hoping BB would also have some input, but I don't think he'll talk to me anymore unless I get rid of my guns

    Probably any laptop with the new P4 Dotham and Mobile 9700 IGP would be the best bet, else A64mobile versions...?
