    I need a new computer and want to get a laptop with a 17 inch screen.

    What is a good low end machine, and where can I get it?

    Also what are the best deals on wireless connectivity? I may get rid of my home phone and get a cell, my current contract is up.

    Is wifi generally reliable for trading? I am doing this because I am planning a trip to Miami for a week or two to Miami in January.

  3. Lenovo Thinkpad T Series - just because of the keyboard.

    It doesn't flex at all. It's the closest keyboard to a desktop, period.
  4. macbook pro, hands down
  5. I've liked the dell latitudes for laptop-as-a-desktop

    Just get one that has quiet fans and doesn't overheat. IBM thinkpads were the best, I suppose Lennovo is the same.

    how about 10" EEE? planning to buy one for browsing and light programing while my son taking some classes. anyone tried EEE PC?

    Thank you!

  8. i have the 1000, like it, not god for trading. amazing for surfing, checking mail, light tasks (watching hulu, porn)
  9. Call Gateway, ask for their refurbs.
    I got a 17" fully loaded. Vista Home Pro works great on my trading apps.
    $750 shipped, with a 1 yr warranty!
    For that price you could buy 2. I did, one for me and one for my wife.
  10. if it is going to be a replacement for a desktop and not carried around lik the first born, then get a 20 inch. I got an Acer in that size and it is a remarkble piece of equiment..... if you do not have to carry it around that is. :D
