    I'm thinking of buying a VX serie. I don't know if the VX series is too old or not good enough.

    don't expect to run any games on it. maybe 2d ones. it's only available with a p3 900 and no kind of hardware video acceleration.

    it also seems a bit expensive for a 900mhz laptop... cheapest is $1700. you can get close to a 2ghz laptop with other gadgets for that much.

    but it's thin and lightweight... so if that's what's important to you, go for it, i guess.

    I think there is only a small graphic card for Movies and DVDs on it. But your right, is a little expensive for a p3 900. I do not expect to play game on it. I can't see me with a laptop on a bus or in a plane playing game on a laptop. I'll reserve it for only write or maybe watch film. BTW, like you said, I like it because if very slim and light, so I can bring it easly.
