I opted for the Turion 64 MK-36, which gives good performance (according to CPU benchmarks, about equivalent to a 3.2GHZ Pentium 4) SuperPI to 1million takes around 40-45 sec depending if im on battery or wall plug
I bumped it up to 1GB of DDR2 Memory which i have never had run out on me (I usually hover between 450-500mb available)
I have a Hitachi 80GB 5400RPM HD which, in HD Tune,Gives me a minimum transfer rate of 3.0mbps, a maximum of 47.5mbps and an average of 36.5mbps, access time is 17.8ms, burst rate is 97mbps and cpu usage is 5.6%
The ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 has 256mb of shared hypermemory (borrows 256mb from system memory.) It gives me pretty respectable performance (about 30fps average in FEAR 1024x768 medium quality)
The 15.4" Samsung Display with Tru-Life (glossy) goes to 1280x800 and looks REALLY Nice! Its very clear with good color saturation and little light leakage
This is built really well, i feel comfortable lifting it with one hand and have little to no body flex.
This has the Dell 1390 wireless card which is capable of B/G Wireless and gets a VERY strong signal, in my opinion, much higher than my older toshiba laptop.
They both are very easy to use and comfortable for my hands, the only thing that bugs me is that clicking the trackpad buttons, feels like pressing the spacebar, but i got used to it quickly
Thats about it, thanks for reading!
