    Hello All,

    I am in the mkt for a laptop, I trade index futures, metals & crude. Can anyone offer a recommendation, Dell, IBM, Sony?? Thx.
  2. see the previous thread about HP laptop.

    Brand doesn't matter much. Win XP is preferable over Vista however. You can still find it on some laptops.
  3. or just wipe out that vista crap and install xp on it

    I've got this Gateway sitting around the house in rather good condition if you're interested in it for $350 plus shipping. Has XP installed, but came with Vista.
