    Looks ok..
    A bit under spec'd in the Video/LAN. Could use more RAM as well.

    512mb 200 pin ram is fairly cheap, $60-70. I'm using an NX9100 and I'm happy with it for what I use it for. The one posted has a nice processor, decent sized HD, nice widescreen, yada yada yada.. although you could probably find a nicer laptop for $750-800 used: http://www.hardforum.com/
