Besides the screen, another thing to consider is the speed and size of your internal Hard Drive -- should be large and fast.
That is where you will rip your movies. And get an external Hard Drive that is more than double
the size of your internal (I'm talking 200Gb and more). That is where you will save your saved movies. This drive will stay at home on your desk when you go away. That's why you want a large internal drive in the first place. This external drive will also be where you back-up your internal drive's files. And don't forget a decent sound board/card with external speakers (those will stay home as well). Just a few thoughts from a movie loving notebook owner (new to the notebooks, not to movies).
