im looking to get a laptop before the next semester starts. i know desktops, but i dont know anything about computer makers, i do my own. who is good, who to avoid, who makes the best shit? if i can get the discount through my employer and the $750 coupon (i just missed it), its savings of about $1000 im looking at the dell 700m, it seems to get good reviews, save the short battery life and some audio in problems. im looking for a thin portable one, not a desktop replacement. something around 4 or 5 pounds. screen quality is important. do all laptops this size have the slightly undersized keyboard? how fast do i want my proc? im looking at the 1.8 pentium m, 512 ram in 2 slots, 60gb drive. thoughts? thanks!
