    make sure its small, the big powerhouses wont last through a lecture and will burn your manhood like a piece of bacon

    i wouldnt go bigger than a 14" screen and get the nicest screen offered

    if you are a gamer and want something powerful buid a powerful desktop and pick up a basic lappy with the $750 off coupon from dell

    Set up a Latitude x1 for a client last week, HIGHLY recommend it (weighs in under 2 lbs & loaded with features).

    Haven't heard a lot good about Dell....

    Who makes the Latitude?

    Right now I have been looking at ASUS mostly because I have heard good stuff about them.

    edit:Found a review on Latitude(by dell;)) and it looks good

    every dell I've seen has disappointed me.

    I'd go for an Asus A1200 or Z33A
