Which Laptop to Buy????

#2
I would go 510m cause of the built in wireless, but if you are going to do any gaming at all then then 5160 would be better for you
 
#3
What do you plan to use it for, mainly?
Will you be carrying it around a lot?

Geffy, every Dell notebook can be configured with an internal miniPCI wireless card. =)

The 510m comes with Intel Extreme Graphics, which wouldn't be a very good idea if you're going to use the machine for gaming.
The 5160 would be a decent machine if it fits within your budget.

Ideally, the 8600c would be best suited for your purpose. It's a really good all-round machine - Pentium-M, a better video card, and a wide-aspect display which would be ideal for watching DVDs.

I'll take a look at the 8600c :)

Do you think its worth getting one now (dont really need just want one lol) or waiting just after X-mas?

I know Dell do some good deals around X-Mas time so might wait til then anyway

A friend of mine just bought an Acer TravelMate 4501WLMi,it has a Intel M 715 [1.5GHz 2MB L2 Cache], ATi Mobility Radeon 9700, DVD-RW, 512MB RAM, Wireless and wired LAN, and XP Pro. Pretty big 15.4" Wide Screen. It runs very nice. I believe he paid $1400, which is about £900 I believe. He bought it through CDW, ordered it Monday, got it Tuesday.

(It's sitting right next to me)

Yeah, might be a good idea to wait until holiday season if you don't really need it immediately.

Don't know much about that system, but those are some nice specs for that price.

I personally have never used an Acer before this, but must say I am impressed. Doesn't have all the startup crap that Compaq and Dell throw on their laptops. I always gasp when I look at msconfig on them. Just the basic touchpad mouse thingy driver.

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
