See the other post today regarding the comparision on the Toshiba M35 series (prebuilt M35S456) or the HPZT3000/Compaq X1000 series..
these both weigh in the 6 pound range and are fully customizable (dedicated video, faster hard drive, cpu speed, etc).
They both have the 15.4" LCD widescreen.
Your Toshiba has only integrated (shared) video memory -- the IBM is great but their pricing is higher (and also has a smaller LCD) but you may want that for durability.
I am shopping for a new laptop. My original choice was a Toshiba Satellite A75-S206. I was then concerned about the weight being 8 pounds. I am a Web developer working on SQL server2000 and will be using .NET Studio shortly. So my idea was to buy a pentium 4 2.8 Ghz or more.
I was then looking towards the IBM T41 m/c which is lighter. It is a Centrino 1.6/1.7 specification.
Will an IBM t41 cater to my needs? Or there any other models which will be a better option?
I am not sure whether I will go for a Sony Vaio. Right now I am getting the A75-S206 for 1199 (After rebates) from Microcenter. If I get their VISA card I would get another $100 off. So for $1100 I would be getting
Pentium 4 HT 2.8Ghz (533 Frontside Bus)
Intergrated Wireless 80211.b/80211.g
15.4" Active Matrix display.
is there any Centrino which will come close to the above specifications?
