Just bought 2 of these for my kidz. Great 'puter for the money. $950 bux ea.
at Sams club.
AMD Athlon 2400+ 1.8GHz
512 MB DDR SDRAM
64 mb video
15.0 XGA TFT
......Overall very pleased.
A lot of computer for a reasonable price. The seem to be able to run everything that has been put in them with no hitches. My son like to play the Grand Theft Auto Vice city and it seems to run that just fine. I did notice the fans runs a lot when he plays that game.
For me I will get the 17 inch Sager. Waiting to see if they will upgrade the screen resolution by Sept.
I did notice one quirk with the systems (both) the setup will not support the switch user feature of XP. You have to log off and then log on with the new user. If you switch users the systems crash and revert to a 4 bit video mode fixable only by restoring to an earlier date. This happend on both systems. Some web searching showed others had the same problem. Minor complaint once you remember just not to switch user. Very nice display, system runs cool for all but the intesive games my son likes to play. I wish I had one of these when I was 13!

I had posted the above earlier. Since then I have dl's a patch from Compaq tech support ( new ATI drivers ) that completely cleared up the problem. We are still very pleased with these 2 laptops and have not regretted this purchase one bit. My 13 year old does play games on his....I know they play that Grand theft Auto one a lot....boring to me but they seem to like it.
At any rate........one fine computer for the money, great screen, batteries last the 2 hour trip out to the farm in the van (keeps the kids busy and occupied)
Very pleased overall with this purchase.
