    well when you use cheap componets you really cant excpect much. Tell you what if you get a dell make sure you get the service plan extended you will use. Iv used it close too 300 times for my facility. Sure they come out next day usually which indeed is nice. But alot of those are hardrives so... hehe is it worth it.

    i better apologize for the flame sorry i wont continue it hehe.

    Maybe it's really from the Austin stone. ;)

    tbh, the one which is closed, does look beige on my screen. That said, it could be the pic, or it could be my monitor, or some combination of the two...

    The real question, with any laptop where they mention it is thinner and sleeker, is what is the weight on the thing?

    Yeah, thx... Looks much better in that pic...

    tbh, I looked at that (panell then, is it that guy is holding?), and thought "wouldn't that look ugly for a laptop, if that is how it looks closed" :eek: Didn't exactly want to say that though.

    It looks better in your pic, as well as the one on the right in muzikool's pic look much better :)

    Optiplex GX 150's, GX 260's, GX 270's
    Insperons C 600, 610 D 600, 610

    I have the most problems with the GX 260's and the c 600's and D 600's.

    We alos use alot of shop computers as old GX 110's but they fail due to horrible conditions and old age. I dont fault them for that. My big disapointment is the D600's. POS's.

    also understand that i support around 600 computers. so I have a high fail rate because of numbers but still hehe. Just makes me dislike Dell. One good thing i can say is lately i have ben able to understand there help desk.

    I was playing with the X-1 last week. Excellent setup :D

    Much better keyboard layout and size than the 700M and it is LIGHT :D

    Screen also has a lot less glare. If only it was a little cheaper :(

    our dell servers are awesome... weigh a freaking ton too but one they end up on a rack they dont move unless some one thinks 2gb ddr2 isnt enough ram :D

    Or if something happens, as happened to the servers in the college network's core... ALA, it was over 100 degrees outside and the A/C died. Needless to say, the campus wide network became a not-work... One piece of largish equip in there generates a whole hell of a lota heat...

    Saz, not that I can afford a laptop now (though one could come in handy in those classes which don't have a desktop sitting in front of us), but what of the keyboard layout? The main problem I have seen on laptops (such as the one a friend of mine has, is a keyboard that is so compact that it's all too easy for my somewhat larger fingers to hit the wrong keys from time to time :eek:

    Things like httl:// don't work too well in a browser :eek:

    They look pretty cool all around. I was just reading their catalog that they sent over.
