    I was reading in Maximum PC, and they said to hold out for a new wave of laptops due out soon that offer technology that is worth waiting for. Unfortunately I forget the details.

    I need a laptop for my visual communications design major, and class starts back up Jan. 3rd. Wondering if I should hold out on picking up a Dell 600m in favor of something that will blow it out of the water in the upcoming months.

    Thanks a bunch.

    :)

    well, you can find a lot of stuff that beats the dell now...

    as far as anything breathtaking coming out soon, it won't. You've got the "centrino" solutions from Intel, and the AMD64 solutions from AMD.

    Well since your a visual design major, you might wait for the models that are currently in the pipes that include PCI Express Graphics... Next round will probably use the new Centrino Proc's that run on an 800MHZ Bus and in turn run PC400 DDR. But it's always a waiting game. There will always be something better coming in the future.

    AMD 64 laptops are the best ever. and they start pretty cheap too.
