10:03 pm - Finally pieced together what I'll be getting for my next laptop.
Originally I was going to go with a Dell, because it was just cheaper for the equivalent than a Lenovo. Then... well, with the release of Intel's T9300 Mobile Core 2 Duo CPU they have an insane sale going on for their T61's. As in, I'm getting over $600 off on the laptop. That... more than made up the difference, and let me get a much better laptop.
So... specs I'm planning on (and I converted the check-out to a 30-day Quote, so I have time to get the funds together easily and reconsider if someone out there finds a better deal) are:
Windows XP Professional (Sadly they don't offer 64-bit)
1920x1200 15.4" widescreen LCD screen (960x600 for gaming)
Ge-Force 8600M GT 256MB video card
T9300M 2.5Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo w/ *6*
megabytes L2 Cache
1GB PC5300 DDR2. (4GB Kingston kit is $100)
80GB 5400RPM Hard Drive (Yes, small and slow)
4-in-1 media card adapter (Yes, it supports SDHC)
Intel 3945 a/b/g wireless card
10/100/1000 Ethernet (Yay, gigabit!)
54mm Express-Card slot (16GB 34mm Express-Card planned)
And the most important part: Three year next day on-site warranty w/ accidental damage protection. I'm sick and fuckin' tired of this 'mail your only computer in to us to replace the freakin' KEYBOARD' bullshit.
And it's gonna cost me about $1790 before tax, about $1900 after tax, including the warranty.5 comments
