    Your battery life will be around an hour or so :hsughno: not to mention it'd be around 10 lbs to lug around when you had to move it (with the charger/etc). HP/compaq laptops are known for having shitty hinges on the screen, too, but the one you're looking at is one of the better built business-class notebooks.

    HP + $2000 = doesnotcompute

    look into a thinkpad or if you're really wanting a decent video card, a Vostro (as much as Dell generally sucks)

    the vostro hinges are as shitty as the hp.

    I would take a hp or gateway over a dell ANY day.

    but for $2k it's not a great machine, imo. I'd say get a $850 gateway/hp with a 15.4" screen. Besides being smaller, lighter, and easier to tote around, you'll likely get a 250GB hard drive and 3-4GB ram included. Furthermore, it'll play steam just grand.

    it's okay. The t61 is the better machine.
