Never owned anythig but a laptop... but have yet to get a new one
Toshiba T1000LE. 8086 9.54MHz, 1MB RAM, 3.5" floppy and 20MB HDD (hand-me down from my dad when I went to college in 94)
Packard-Bell Statesman 486 w/ 8mb RAM. don't remember the rest. A friend of mine gave it to me when his company upgraded all the lappys in their exective fleetback in 97 & he had a stack of em on his desk.
Toshiba tecra 520CDT (my first pentium) P166MMX, 92MB, 6gb HDD. got it refurb'ed in 99 for $800
Toshiba Tecra 8100 PIII, 600 MHz, 256MB, 12GB HDD got it on ebay in 2003 for $400 (still use it as it's all I've got)
Next lappy: PM, 512MB (maybe a gig), 40GB HD 5200rpm, 15.4" non-glossy screen, international warranty & <=6lbs. Any suggestions (maybe send me a PM to keep this thread on topic)?
