due to the "rootkit" thing right now. also had some bad support problems.
look into the dv4000 at hp.com
or i would suggest the toshiba m45 s359 which features a 2.0ghz pentium m, 1gb of ram, 80 (or was it 100) gb 5400rpm sata hd, win. xp home, etc.
I need a laptop for campus and i thought this would do perfectly but i am not sure i never use sony laptops in my life. i went to bestbuy and they had it on sell so i was like i really like the spec's but the only problem i have is the harddrive rpm. it is only 4500rpm. i would like to know if that is a good rpm. i would really like to know because if anyone would give me some feedback on ther past issues with sony i would appreicate. i just dont want to make a big mistake in spending $1300 on a lemon. so if u would give me some clues on about the FS742 i would find that very helpful - thanks.
