    I bought an Acer a few years back.It's a p3600 with an ATI 8mb mobile graphics and it came with windows 98se.I installed win2000 then win xp to see how it would run.After adding 128mb of pc100 for a total of 256mb xp ran quicker than 98 and 2000.I am amazed at the leaps and bounds that laptops have made since I bought mine.I paid about $1300 and could probably get a nice fast one that will play UT2003 or Max Payne.Good luck Rev,sounds like a winner.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
