    I would go with the 512 MB of ram. Most of the computers these days come standard with 512 MB.

    I have 1GB on my laptop and it sometimes runs slow when I have e-signal and Tradestation running at the same time.

    Go with the 512 MB.
  6. i just went threw buying a laptop. i had a dell inspirion 5100 and wasn't happy with it. i then bought a cheap toshiba and it froze on me so i took it back. after much research i bought a nice hp with a 15.4 inch screen 80 g hard drive and 1g memory. hp has the best screen i've seen with the pentium centurion chip 1.7 ghz. the screen is as clear as a lck tv. it cost $1050 after rebate a t compusa. i'm very happy with it

    You need to price it out a bit. you might come out better getting less memory installed and purchasing 2 sims.
  8. 512 is a bare minimum

    manufacturers put 256 so you can pay higher prices for upgrades.

    define cheap and we can help you out more

    Dell frequently has online coupons and you can get a decent deal.
  10. When i say cheap i mean atleasy $600 to $750 max
    I think pll selling laptop who offer the price liek $499 599 is all billshit
    And when i go to buy
    then they say Rebater $100 from vendor
    Rebate $100 from manf
    + to ugrade u have to pay $50 blah blah
    False Advertising
    I am looking at HP and found some good one for $750
    May be if i dont find anything better i will buy it
    Has any one had expericne with ACER
    Is it a good brand - ?
