i'm sick of my 17" crt.... i'm sick of my mobo being incaptible with one of my drivers and crashing windows at least once a week i'm sick of it not telling me which drive it is i'm sick of having my floor vibrate from my fans i'm sick of having no desk space so, i'm sick of my tower. i will be parting it out eventually, or ebaying it as one unit... i dunno i will also be selling my tuning laptop. it's fine and all, but its just too old (even though its only a couple years old, its outdated for a main machine for a nerd of my stature ) so, here's the deal. assuiming i get 500 for my laptop, and 500 for my tower or pieces inside it thereof, and about 500 more from my tuning stuff that i will be selling, i'm going to have 1500 bucks to buy myself a new laptop. 1st and foremost, i will not buy a dell. so don't even suggest it. F them. hdd space is not that big a deal to me--- i have a 160gb external usb hdd with most of my music on it anyway. an 80 gb main drive would be fine. a raid 50gb/50gb or something similar would be ideal. widescreen display. i want it. i never have my widows full height, but i always have them full width. and besides, widescreen owns. docking station. yup, it has to have one available. i will probably buy this later, so don' include that in the price... but it must be available. i hate typing on laptops. and while i can jsut plug in a keyboard, i'd like to set up a docking station at my desk and that way i can simply bring it downstairs or outside or where ever if i want to without having to fuss with cords... option to have it NOT come with software. I don't want office, i don't want your macafee crap that doesn't work worth a damn anyway. all i want is XP pro on it. NOTHING else. no celeron processors. god those things suck. amd 64 or M class only. 1gb ram, in dual 512 arrangement. built in dvd burner ieee ports usb ports NO BLUETOOTH. so, what would you buy?
