    Im going to get a laptop before i leave for college, ill prob be buying it in December, is there anything new that is going to come out between now and december that i should wait for? It is mainly going to be used for school and gaming, im trying to stay under 1500, looking for 128mb dedicated video memory, looks like the Radeon X600 is my best bet. Seems like Acer has some really good prices on their laptops, anyone have any experience with that company? i know jack shit when it comes to laptops, if anyone has advice on what i should do, i would appreciate it. Also what are the best CPU's for laptops? i see there is a Turon or something from AMD, and a ton of other ones, im lost

    Do yourself a favor and drop into your local Apple Store or CompUSA before buying, and try out a powerbook ;)

    only thing that u *might* want to wait for is intel's dual core pentium-m's. but if ur lookin to buy in dec they won't be out yet. they're slated for Q1/2. and pentium M > *.mobilecpu.
