Wow, nice choices. :)

It looks like you'll be getting better battery life out of Setup #1, on account of both the Pentium M processor and the lesser graphics card. I see that you did opt for the extended battery with Setup #2 though, so I'm sure that will help. The 256MB ATI card seems pretty hefty... are you a gamer? If so then I can understand that decision. :) You'll obviously have a faster machine with Setup #2, but I would consider it more of a "desktop replacement" than Setup #1. So for mobility purposes I would say #1, and for desktop purposes #2, assuming that either is fine for your budget. :)

budget budget budget lol....i dun like that word lolz all those prices are in US currency imma b payin in cdn $ sooo yea...battery life isn't a problem as it'll b plugged in probably most of the time but im thinking the battery wont die out that quickly as for games yes i do play n wud like the speed and graphics of a desktop but was just wondering are the mobile chips 'crippled' ..i guess i cud use that word...like that 2.0ghz dothan chip how does it compare to a p4 chip as in speed what wud it b equal to or amd whichever is easier..
