Ok walking through Office Depot today and wife spots these two for $449 after rebates:

How pathetically slow will these be, especially running Vista?

Just looking for something to surf with from the patio, bedroom, etc. Battery life not critical and no gaming. Plus an exposure to Vista first hand...

-Yes, I know I will have to upgrade the pathetic 512 MB memory.
-Both are Celeron M about 1.7GHZ, 533 FSB with Vista Home.

Toshiba A135-S2246

Please feel free to rant about warantee and reliability issues you've encountered with HP/Compaq or Toshiba.

If it will just be used when you're out and about for keeping in contact, they should be okay. I would look for higher specs if you think you might give them more than light occasional use.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
