  • What laptop would you recommend?

    I've looked at the PowerBook and it's simply an amazing piece of engineering. The interesting thing is that the 17" model only weighs 6.9 lbs, which is amazing compared to the PC counterparts.

    The problem is, I can't use a PowerPC CPU for what I do. I need to use an Intel-based laptop. I need a laptop that has a giant screen, a fancy video card, a DVD-RW/CD-ROM drive, 60gb hard disk, 520 mb RAM, and wireless networking capability. Is there a laptop with all these features at comparable size?

    Thanks...

      I believe Toshiba is the only PC manufacture that has a 17" laptop on the market. Its quite a machine, but also quite a chip in the bank account.

      2.8 GHz
      80GB
      512MB PC 2100
      GeForce Go5200 32MB DDR

        You might also check out the IBM site. You can build your own notebook there. I have a 2.4GHZ, 60 GIG Drive, DVD/CDR and 512 MB PC2100. The computers are pricey also but well worth it. IBM doesn't have a 17 inch screen though.

          I think Sony has a 17" one, too.

          There's also the iBook G4 now, finally.

            I've heard Fujitsu laptops are actually pretty decent, buT I haven't been able to find any in the US (not that I've looked super hard yet or anything)

              Do you really need over 40gb on a notebook or is it the greediness of the human nature that is taking place?

                No, people just demand higher quality porn.

                  keep away from the 5200 go cards they are the crappiest piece of work ever.

                  look for an ati 9600 mobility they will out perform the 5200 happily

                    I have a Toshiba 16" Satellite, which is large enough for me. I have found it to be an excellent machine. I did have a really hard time finding a case to fit it, though. Be wary of that with the larger PC laptops. Most cases on the market won't accomodate them.
