I have a 1 yr old 5660 2.4 gig P4 512k ram 15" 1600x1280 LCD ATI 9000 64meg setup and was wondering what do I get for the $745 upgrade from sager? Do they use my old cpu, which is fine, I'm mainly interested in the new ATI 9600.
A sager 5660-C. 2.4 gig P4, ATI 9000, 5600rpm drive, 1600x1280 screen - Knoppix seems to only run in 1280x1024 though, at 1600 its jacked. 512K DDR CD-R combo drive. The LCD is the one before the nice viewing angle upgrade, I purchased my sager for this past xmas
If you want to try a linux distro without partitioning and installing to your HD try knoppix, its a CD version. I'm running it as I write this. I have some windows drives on the local network mounted via smbmount and playing mp3's through the network. Lots of nice utilities and programs to play with to get the feel for linux.

Well, I got a firewire 60gig drive that I backup to for my laptop and main desktop. Its fast as hell and quite portable. I like it. I just ghost images over to it and I also leave it plugged intot he desktop and share it across the networka t home and keep my 10 gigs of mp3s on it. pletty nice IMHO
