ok what you guys think.. this is own of many i just cant make up my mind and im gona wait tell the new mobile AMDs get out and set up. But what you think of this set up.. this is through www.pctorque.com and i have determind through them that they are a reputable company.

One of my question is have a rig with a gig or ram in it allready and i KNOW there is a big diff. But in a lap and this.. do you think the 110 extra for a gig instead of 512 is worth it..

Everyone just pick and and tell me what you like dislike.. god i cant make up my mind. hehe

The Dothans are already extremely efficient when it comes to power consumption and battery life. That's not the problem.
The rest of the high-end components in that thing are going to drain the battery much more, though 4-5 hours for such a high-spec machine is really good.

I agree. I've been floppy-less for about 4 years now, and I don't miss those clumsy things one bit. :D

so another question is.. should i opt up for the dvd writer or just stick with the dvd player / cd burner hehe
Depends on you, really. I have a standard CD-RW/DVD combo drive in my notebook, and I've never felt the need for a DVD-burner, but then there are those that do. I don't know what I'd do with one, to be honest. For large data backups, I just use my external USB 2.0 drive now.

Well this happened only once, but it still makes me want to have a floppy drive...

My friend's windows xp installed got so messed iup that it wouldnt boot at all, so I was gonna repair it just so I can backup important class notes and such. Well as luck would have it, his cdrom was also broken. I tried using a USB drive but making one bootable and getting ghost to work (thought I could at least make an image to a external drive. I wasnt able to backup the data before he shipped it out to get fixed and of course they "had to" restore is which repartitions (DAMN THEM!).

All Im basically trying to say is its good to have one as a backup boot device, or (if ur in school) if ur teacher want a project on a floppy instead of a usb key (which I wouldnt give em anyways, floppies are cheaper).

Phew! Alot to read/type

I run my lappy very happy on 512 - would not sweat it the procesor in mine could not use the extra unless I was running bloatware - do NOT clone your desktop to your laptop - keep it lite and you will go fine...

Just IMHO of course
