    MBP or thinkpad. Based on price, thinkpad.

    lol @ shitty

    You guys just sound bitter with your constant and never-ending dell hate. Companies change, grow and learn from the past....especially when sales drop. Isn't it possible that the company that burned you so badly in the past has evolved?? Where's the forgiveness in your heart?? Where's the love??

    lol ok...but seriously Dell isn't nearly as bad as you guys make them sound. Fuck I've heard way more probs about those fucking Macs that are supposed to "just work" than the Dells.

    Just got my T61p... loving it! Just got my RAM upgrade today, and it makes the laptop so freaking awesome. T7500 2.2 3GB (well, 4GB, but i only have Vista 32bit :() 80GB HDD, Vista Ultimate. It ended up being a bit more than Randomguy's, but work paid, so i don't mind much.

    Its total garbage...they said it was going to ship on the 24th, so I check today and the website says 30th. I call up and the idiot says that its gonna ship the 26th. I ask him for written verification (email or something) and he said hes not authorized to do that...so frustrating.
