Just a simple question. With 64-bit laptops now shipping that run today's apps, will you be unhappy if, in a few months the PC world flips to that?
If not, the Dell is fine, the IBM is usually a tank.
i wanted to know what everyone thinks about the dell latitude x300 vs IBM x40 or x31. if anyone can give me some advice as to which ultra portable is better or if there is an even better laptop about the same size available. im up to any suggestions. my range is pretty much up to $2200 -- something with a small foot print, pentium M 1.2+ for email, internet, powerpoints, word, and digital music...maybe DVD (preferably an external op drive).
