  1. I am looking for a new 15" laptop and ideally a portable
    small second screen for my order entry programe.

    I dont need a 17" ... too heavy and it still will not accomodate everything..

    Last machine was an HP presario which was better than a pile
    of dog pooh but not quite good enough to be rated as a
    poorly built laptop.

    All inputs gratefully received.
  2. If you're not looking to spend a lot, here's a great deal on a Compaq at BB:


    It's sold out online and most stores, but you can call & check, sale ends tomorrow. $449 for those specs is great. The Altec Lansings speakers are amazing too, never heard a laptop sound this great before.

    If you want something better, the Dell Vostro line just came out, new Intel chipset and better video card for $599.

  3. Wow, what is the margin on a computer for under $500 with dual core? Just crazy that only a couple of years ago a decent laptop was $1k.
  4. macbook pro! :D

  6. f9,

    I have the perfect pocket rocket for you if you want to spend the money. I have this one with a Matrox dualhead2go and a couple extra 14" collapsible monitors. It all fits in a single pilots case as a carry on when a travel. I've included the links.


    Matrox DualHead2Go:
    (You can find these on eBay too)


    I've picked up a few of these monitors and use them basically as disposable.
  7. That's a good idea, thanks.
