Well im faced with a slight problem....I need a laptop (obviously) but i need something good for travelling, something with the following specs:
RAM - 1GB (min)
CPU - Duo would be nice (something 2GHz +)
HDD - 80GB
Weight - 2.5KG MAX
USB/Firewire/wireless blah blah all those standards.
and my budget is about $3500 definate max.
So far ive found a few, mainly looking at the Dell M1210 (and i know, its a DELL D: but its a pretty well specd laptop)
I have also looked at the Sony Vaio (over priced under specd crap), and a few toshiba machines too (but the prices on these is pretty hihg)
Im going to Japan for some time, and want something I can travel with easily, something thats a bit tough, and something that is kind of small.
I want to be able to hook it up to a tv and watch movies, do some film editing of my trip and store digi photos, music and other bits n pieces.
Im still not really sold on a 12" screen, and would like a 14, but of course weight is where i suffer on this. And nothing really seems much cheaper with a larger screen.
Anyone suggest some other machines? or opinions on the Dell box, i remain VERY unsure about the dell. for the main reason of dell having a bad rep.
