1. HP Pavilion ze2115US Notebook PC -

2. Compaq Presario V2405US Notebook -

3. HP Pavilion zv6130us -

I would go with one of the Turion processors if you are going to be mobile with it. If battery life is not an issue then the athlon. Do not get one with a centrino. It will not be able to run windows vista that will release at the end of the year.
