im looking for a laptop that is snappy, yet potable enough to take it onboard a Navy ship witch also means reliable seeing as how i can't just drive to the UPS building and send it back any help with brands?


prefurably in the $0 (wishful thinking) - $1,700 us dollar range

is dell still haveing cooling problems?

Has any 1 bought a Hypersonic computer? had truble with it?

is it true the CPU don't matter as long as its new and u get 2gb of ram?

I found one right below your budget.

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16834114176

Its a toshiba
it has an NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600 128mb which is good for a laptop and the laptop has 1gb of ram. For 2gb of ram and a good laptop video card it will be over 2 grand. A laptop isnt meant for gaming but you can play games on this laptop.

Hypersonic pc's are expensive laptops meant for gaming, so it will be out of the budget for shure.


You can always goto the manufacturers site and build your own. Sony, ibm, hp, toshiba make good all around laptops. For what you want if you goto a manufacturers site it might be over your budget. :tazz:

Acer makes good ones out of the box, you want something witha go6600 or 6800 gfx chip in it, ram isnt as big deal because its one of the few things you can upgrade yourself.

Get an Alienware; you will never regrtet it. If you want a more potrable drevice, they have them, (I was fortuineate enough to get a top of the line laptop from them right before they put the 64 bit cips in them). but they have one's made for portability, look into ti. I don't know how much you are willing to spend though, but I am still trying to get used typing on a laptop; I find it very difficult! Anyway...

Regards,

Bill

No they make some cheapish ones, at least they do here, when i say cheap they arent cheap but they are reasonable in that budget anyway.

Better than Alienware. Check out some of the Falcon NW FragBooks and configure 1 for yourself. THey are known for competing with Alienware, just not as big.
