The Inspiron 6400 does have a Media Card Reader, check out the description at Dell's website.
I ordered this laptop with a very powerful configuration and I'm expecting it to arrive any day now. I'll post about it when I try it out.
No ... I didn't buy my laptop ! I know ... I'm starting to be a little bit annoying ... But please, forgive me about this I really like want to don't regret it after my buying !
Now, I'm looking on something a little bit more high-end than the Compaq Presarion V200Z. But I have three possibilities :
1. I can buy this Dell Inspiron 6400 with maybe a good deal because the company of my father is associated with Dell so maybe I can have a good deal :
Core Duo T2300
Windows XP Home
15.4 " XGA Display with True Life ( I like the glossed finish of a laptop screen )
8X DVD Burner
ATi Mobility Radeon X1400
INTEL PRO/Wireless 3945
Nylon Backpack Carrying Case
Carbon Fiber QuickSnap Cover
1 year warranty
Surge Protector included
1400 $ CAN ( arround this )
2. I can wait for the AMD Turion 64 X2.
3. I can buy this second-hand laptop from my father for a riduculous price :
Pentium M 725 Chipset 855PM
1024 MB RAM
ATi Mobility Radeon 9000 32 MB AGP 4X
I also want that this laptop is turned towards the future one and not only over the present. It is a primary importance for me to have the Media Card Reader because I intend to make photo editing with this laptop but I does not know if it has this option on the 6400. I will do a little play with, like Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighters or Need For Speed Most Wanted.
I want replacement a deskop but 15.4 " version .
If the BIOS update will be available, I will probably change the Yonah processor for a MEROM within 1 year and half or 2 years whereas the prices drop out because I believe that this portable can have a long lifespan.
Thank you very much and once again, forgive me for my determination
