Re: Blair
The AV-Comparatives.com link was broken, but other than that, thanks for all the great info. I'll be looking into all the anti-virus programs recommended here over the next few days. Also, I agree that NewEgg's shipping was pretty great, and fairly cheap. It only cost $17 to ship this laptop.

ahh, it's av-comparatives.org

What sounds like SC2 leaked specs http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=189528 It's gaming so not necessarily w/f safe.


Your biggest limitation will probably be whatever video is on your laptop. Some ATI or Nvidia solutions might be decent, but ya neve know.

Good thread here. I'm on the verge of springing for an ultra portable and am leaning towards Dell after looking at Lenovo and a few others like Mac, etc.
Here's the one I'm looking at:

The $1,299 model should have all the performance needed and I'll get XP on it. The Inspiron we have right now is pretty ok except it is heavy and has Vista ugh. We were going to buy a replacement desktop for the old Gateway in the office but another laptop with XP and an external drive seems better.
