    The Dell XPS M1550 is a beautiful system. It is built like a rock and performs well. I'd recommend going with the LED backlighting.

    I have the M1330 and I am very happy with it.

    HP and Lenovo ThinkPads are built more like tanks as far as being able to be destroyed easily. :)

    I like the Hp, should i get a Centrino Duo or AMD Turion 64 X2 laptop.
    I always gotten centrino duo or centrino single core before. I just need it to do allot of photo edits and other types of editing but no video editing also I won't be gaming on it, ill stick to the ps3 for games.
