14 inch screen with a dedicated graphics card?

by dkokelley / February 3, 2006 5:13 AM PST

Are there any notebooks out there that have a smaller screen (14 inch) yet still include a dedicated graphics card. I've looked around a lot, and I've only found one or the other, but not both. The Dell XPS M140 was almost my decision until I noticed the lack of a dedicated graphics card. This notebook will be a college notebook, and I hope it will last my through all four years. It's primary use will be various media, including DVD playback, and audio recording/production. This all in addition to the basic internet access, and other functions, portability, and battery life you would expect from a college student's notebook. However, I will also want to have some fun with it as well, and not get stuck with a notebook that can't play any fun games for 4 years. Are there any out there that will suit what I'm looking for? Thanks.

Ok that looks pretty much like what I'm looking for, but it is a little pricey ($1600-$2000). Does anyone know of which online retailers are cheap/respectable and give me the option of customizing the notebook? If I can't customize it that's fine, as long as it has 512+ RAM, 5400rpm HDD, and wifi then it should suit my needs. Thanks!
