    Yeah, i need to buy a new laptop before i head to out to SEMA this year...i leave monday so i'll need to pick this up this weekend. Anyways the company is giving me a $800 budget for a new laptop. Anyone have any recomendations as to a decent yet cheapish laptop? I have no clue when it come to this stuff.

    $800 for a new laptop? Dude, your company hates you.

    Intel Core2Duo, anyway.

    Why isn't your company using linux-either (K)Ubuntu or PCLinuxOS?

    I've been using PCLinuxOS for half a year now on a laptop with wireless.
    No interest in going back to Windows. I put a on Ubuntu distrib on my
    old Imac, runs nicely.

    Check it out.
