My 8600 is still running, but not powerful enough to run todays apps.
its not always the plastics i worry about, general build quality, heres somthing i found
from consumer reports, id rather have an asus with a carbon fiber chasis, than a dell that if i drop by accident, 3 pieces would fly off or somthing of that nature
speaking of which, i cant stand hp's new line of laptops, i went to CC and pressed in the palm rest, almost broke it, much love for the DV8000 series!!!
