    im in the market for a 14 inch laptop under $800 and have so far narrowed it down to two choices.

    this HP ==> http://shop2.outpost.com/{neZJb2dlpq6+5Two2U-xTA**.node3}/product/5290167#detailed

    or a dell inspiron 1420.

    both have 1 gig RAM.

    the HP is $700 with much better specs on it (160 gig HD plus DVD burner, webcam). however, the screen is described as (1280X800) WXGA High-Definition BrightView Widescreen.

    the dell inspiron, after i chose my configurations, is 1440X900, 80 gig HD and no DVD burner for roughly $770 after my friend's employee discount.

    while the specs are better on the HP, screen resolution is a HUGE deal to me. i can't stand looking at giant sized icons/windows etc.

    so can someone tell me if there is a significant difference between 1440X900 and 1280X800? perhaps a screenshot would be greatly appreciated.

    The extra money is totally worth it for a laptop that will last you the next 5 years.

    Well I currently own an Asus notebook. My next notebook will be either Apple or Lenovo.

    Basically Asus is about as well built as a standard machine can be.

    However, Lenovo is built to a completely different level. The chassis is more robust. The metal hinges are a god send. You open and close a ThinkPad and you just feel the quality radiating from it. Legendary keyboard. Anti-shock hard drive chassis. Superior reliability. Superior performance.

    It's like the difference between a Toyota and a Lexus

    um, no. Everything I have seen has shown a noticeable improvement in quality in workmanship, parts, materials, service, warranty, etc.

    I highly disagree.
    Based on both experience and inside sources
