    Japanese Laptop

    What do you think about this machine:

    http://www.twotop.co.jp/special/ux3.asp

    Specs:
    □ HT Pentium4プロセッサ 3.20GHz
      (FSB800MHz/L2 cache 512KB)
    □ 1GB(512MBx2)PC3200 SO-DIMM DualChannel-DDR
    □ 80GB UltraATA100 2.5 inch HDD
    □4XDVDR/RWスリムマルチドライブ
    (DVDRx4/+RWx2.4x/-RW2x/CD-R16x/RW8x/CD24x/DVDx8)
    □ Ati Mobility Radeon 9700 128MB
    □ USB 2.0, Firewire, Gigabit LAN
    □ 15" UXGA 1600X1200 Screen
    □ Soundblaster Pro Audio

    One sweet machine I think.. The price is right too..

    2,177.88 USD Only cause the Yen is very strong against the dollar.



    Was looking at this one too:

    but it is about $1000 dollars more.

    sounds like a deal to me... the weight really has no effect on what I purchase unless it starts to weigh 10+ pounds... I'm a pretty big guy why suffer with a slow laptop if I can suck it up and carry it. looks like a great way to play some bf1942 on the road...

    Looks great. The price too for the specs. For my I prefer a laptop in the 400$ but it has to be at least 900Mhz (yes, I am picky)

    that laptop sounds better than my computer

    actually, My home computer has those specs and I say get it

    My laptop is a 2ghz cellery with an ati mobility graphics card and I can play vice city at low resolution for about 2.5 hours on battery

    that monster should last 1.5 hours with awesome high resolution and it will not need an upgrade for awhile

    i'd get it if you won't loose your girl

    well, I found out that you can put your home computer for deduction out of your taxes here. That save me from paying this year (I really do use it. I use Cygwin to use ssh to connect to work).
    Maybe you can do the same in Japan, and taxes are expensive there

    That is a nice one BB.Laptops are getting very powerful these days and yes 9lbs. is heavey compared to my P3 600 Acer,but my Acer can't play all those nice games that my desktop can.I say if you've got the casholla go for it.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Overall, it looks good. No cover on the back (debri and bumps) and the speakers are small, but at least your hands will not cover them up. Are you going to use a mouse? Not sure exactly where the mouse port is located, but it appears to be on the back right-hand side that will cause the mouse cord to wrap around the unit?
