Acer Ferrari 4000

by mtdew247 / August 1, 2005 8:49 AM PDT

This looks like the notebook for me, but I was just wondering if there was anything else comparable that is coming out any time soon. The key features that I am looking for are...

15.4" widescreen (or something close)
a processor designed for mobile applications
128MB dedicated video
80+ GB HDD
1+ GB RAM
built in wireless b/g and bluetooth
dual layer dvd burner

If anyone knows of any alternatives or helpfull websites it would be much appreciated.

I would say forget about 64-bit if you have a laptop, because you need an os to run 64-bit and you would need drivers for your notebook if you get a new os, which i doubt the manufacturer would provide, so the only upside is amds are faster.

Pentium M (Centrino) is 32 bit but still best notebook now

In reply to: RE

AMD 64 cpus are compatible with 64 bit windows. However, the 32 bit Pentium M notebooks are currently the best for your money in notebooks for the combination of battery life, weight, heat and performance.

Microsoft has announced that the new Vista (formerly Longhorn) should be out by the end of 2006 so any notebook you buy now is not going to run as well as a notebook designed specifically for the specifications of Vista will run.

AMD Turion is a good cpu in theory but supposedly early models have been somewhat disappointing for more heat and lower batter life versus the Pentium M Centrino notebooks.
