sooooooooooo i'm considering a laptop, mainly 2 brands ;) Toshiba and Fugitsu

the toshiba:
http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe....z=19&service=UK&PRODUCT_ID=76230&DISC_MODEL=0
£~1300
Intel® Pentium® 4 3.06GHz Processor
Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition
512MB DDR RAM
40GB Hard Disk Drive
15" TFT Display
CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive

or (my favorite)

http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/rl/products/notebooks/consumer/amilo/amiloD.html
fujitsu-siemens.com Amilo D

P4 3.2
512Mb ram
80Gb HD
128Mb graphics
15.4" display
802.11b wireless
£~1300 on dabs.co.uk ( site having maintenence @ mo :( )

i have to sat the Amilo D is sweeeet, but i havn't seen/played with any figitsu's so i dont know how well they last etc.
i know the toshiba looks dead sexy in blue, and have also had a play on it, but the graphics card (lack off) lets it down as well as the fact it has no wifi card.

so which laptop do you all think is the best, this is only an idea @ mo so i dont know if i will get 1 ;)

I sell Fijitsu they are good makes but harder to get fixed here in Canada. Not as many repair depots. Toshiba is still my choice for plabtops as for system life. Fijitsu breaks its harder to get repaired.

I see your in EU so is a little easier to get fixed but still out of all the l;abtops I sold Toshiba is still the best all around.

Also Toshiba does have Hyperthreading, Well the ones in North America.

ok so i just had a lil look + nocied they added the 9100 too there range, so i had a lil play with customizing it. ends up about £~300 more for the same spec as the amilo D, also it's heavyer :(

I chose other just because I already have a very capable desktop ... and in a laptop I'd be looking for portability and battery life over power, and I think Dell or IBM offer better solutions. Personally, WiFi is important since I'm almost always somewhere with a WAP. I'd also prefer a Centrino platform over Mobile Athlon XP.

Well, if you do decide to go with a Dell (Inspiron) system, I'll tell you they are solid systems from personal experience. If you fire up AIDA32, you can pretty much see that every last component in there is made by a reputed manufacturer, so you don't have to worry about it in that sense.

Prices are usually very competitive too. I believe all of them come with built-in Wi-Fi as an option as well. The TrueMobile 1300 is a 802.11g/b internal card.

I voted other. I have a Dell Latitude D800. Works great for games and has built in wireless, It also has 10/100/1000 nic card, with 512ddr. I couldn't beat that price for under 2 grand!
Although I did see that eMachine today. I must say that is nice! I might have to think on that one!

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
