1 i can't spend a lot of money(i'm italian ,i guess i ought to buy it on the internet from the usa )
2 I DON'T want windows vista in it(i heard too much bad things about it)

What could i choose?

Where are you buying it from?

Where are you taking it to?

What are you going to be using the notebook for and what are you studying at school?

What price-range are you looking at staying within?

What specific features MUST you have on the system?

What size/weight considerations are you needing?

Just a few questions to get started :)

Also, I highly recommend Vista for anyone. Granted there are some quibbles, but it is the fastest and most stable operating system I have personally used, both on my desktop and my notebook. Also, far fewer issues than I experienced with XP or Ubuntu 7.04.

Check out the refurbished Dell laptops ... (am I allowed to post a url?) ... really good machines, many still under warranty, at incredible prices.

You can also do an easy price/feature comparison.

Since it is for a recommendation, and you are not promoting a site you own, or have an vested interest in, yes it is perfectly fine.

That I have used, yes :)

Feisty and Gutsy are pretty snappy but given the oodles of time I had to spend just to be able to use my system @ native resolutions, I have to give them negatives on speed on that...

I prefer Sager myself(its an alienware with a different name, all made by clevo). The site I got mine from was
http://www.powernotebooks.com/category.php?catId=26

The site isnt the best looking in the world but the customer service is the best i have ever had.

I second that, Sager kicks serious ass. Awesome tech support and GREAT quality products. My sager is solid as a battle tank and sexy as a model, I have gotten lots of comments from people too. :D

the url dellfinancialservices.com is blocked. But I swear that's where I was looking last week. Oh well. Maybe the computers fell off the back of a lorry.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
