not so good things about Dell. I just got an A75-S226 and am, so far, quite pleased with it. It does not appear to have any issues with disk speed. It starts a LOT faster than my desktop.
I have narrowed my laptop down to two possibilities, thank God - this is wearing me down - Dell or Toshiba.
First let me say this, I travel, a lot, and that is all this computer will be used for. I do not want to have to lug a lot of extras around either. I have a home network and so once there will access the computer via my desk. I have a heavy old Compaq and it wears you down lugging that, along with files and everything else you have to take on the road.
If I go Toshiba I have selected the Satellite M35-S456. Is this too big? It looks sweet in the store.
If I go with Dell I have narrowed it down to either the Inspiron 600m or the Latitude D600 (or is the 700m really the way to go). What is different about the Inspiron verus Latitude?
Whatever system I choose they will be built to almost identical specs.
The Toshiba is at Circuit City and comes loaded. My only concern is the speed (4200 rpm) of the hard drive. I can go much higher (and pay for it too) by building a system at Dell.
Also, Is there any difference if I build the system at Dell on the home & home office side versus the small business side?
Customer service is not a huge issue, but is Dell good or bad, from reading the reviews, I can't tell.
Your help is grealt appreciated. Thank you.
