    im looking at the dell 700m and im having some trouble picking what hard-drive speed to choose.. its either 80gb 5400 or 60gb 7200 :noes: .. its an extra 100 bucks though:hsugh:

    im not trying to spend to much on the laptop, but i dont want it to be super slow and get outdated too quick:rolleyes: .. its mainly going to be a laptop on the go for school and for homework, i doubt i will be gaming on it


    oh yea my budget is like $1200 if anyone can find me another laptop thats slim and under 13" screen

    If it was be i'd go for the 60GB 7200 one. The 5400 will be slow, and you'd be able to tell the difference.

    Plus if your only using it for school then 60GB would be fine.
