(my first post
I just placed an order with a guy who's hooking me up w/
this laptop for $1100 this morning, and we're going to pick
it up tonight. I'm so stoked... This laptop is everything I've
been looking for, and Im only sacrificing the widescreen
which isn't important.
I was looking for:
any LCD w/ sxga+ or wxga+ and better
Fairly descent graphic card in case I want to play games
an AMD64 chip
a 5400rpm (or better) drive
a descent case (plastic ones can get annoying)
My old machine was a Dell Inspiron 8500 which I sold to a friend
recently since one of the usb ports went out and I broke
the pcmcia slot on accident. I had a wxga+ screen and LOVED
it. I was pretty pissed to find out that no stores have high resolution
screens unless you plan on spending $2000 or more.
My setup will be:
# LCD: 15.1 SXGA+ 1400x1050 display
# CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Mobile
# Memory: DDR333 512M
# HDD: Hitachi 40G 5400RPM
# CDRW/DVD Combo
# *** Wirless G , Subwoofer Included! ***
# 4 In 1 Card Reader And Carry Bag Included!
# VGA: ATI Radeon 9700 128M
# Color: Dark Silver
I checked for similar, and identical setups online, and they would've
run me $1300 or $1400+. The guy who's selling me the laptop
is only marking it up like $50 from what he's payin.
