Only bad thing I would note is the 5400RPM hard drive, which is odd for a system with specs so new....

5400rpm is about as fast as laptop drives get. They're either 4200rpm or 5400rpm, so this is the fastest you can expect.

Nice work Fenor, I was looking for 7200rpm 2.5in drives a little while ago & couldn't find any! About time they started to produced laptop drives faster than 5400rpm.

I personally don't see the point of a 17 in. laptap on pentium 4. Sure it will be powerful and stuff but where's the mobility? You can get a much better desktop for $3k.

But it's up to you.
