Something like this? It has more hard drive space because when you have friends, you want to be able to sample any music they have (recorded themselves... because stealing music is wrong!).
The thing about finger print scanners is that they are extremely rare and very expensive on the consumer side.
However, that being said, you can lug around this little usb thing:
I have a pocket pc that has a finger print scanner on it. And although it is a neat little add on. I hate it. Your finger has to be a perfect temperature to get the reader to work, you can't have any fresh cuts or scrapes and the thing miss scanned so much I had to configure all the fingers as just one so that it would take my finger no matter how I slid in on there.
You may want to consider a tiny 8gb flash drive. They are cheap and if your laptop breaks while away from somewhere that could repair it, you would still have your docs easily available.
Also please remember that laptops DO NOT LAST. You will be very lucky if your laptop makes it 4 years without an issue of one kind or another.
So im going into the air force for 4 years and im in the market for a laptop. Im going to be buying it now but wont be able to have it/use for about 6 months. They are new to me as i have always used desktops. I dont think i will be moving it around on a day to day basis, except for when i am traveling home, base to base, etc. I have about a $1250 budget, give or take. Ill want to use it for about 4 or 5 years so i want to invest well into it. Ill mainly use it for internet, school work, email, importing photos from digi camera, watching the occasional movie, and downloading music to use it in itunes for my ipod. The features im looking at right now are intel core 2 duo, vista home premium, 2gb ram, at least 3 usb ports, fingerprint scanner, led backlit lcd screen, dvd/cd, wireless internet capable.
If anybody has any specific laptop recommendations or general advice that would be much appreciated! Thanks!
