Once again back with another installment of buy or not buy? Today I need some input on the special edition L2000 HP notebook. Here are the build specs:
Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP Professional with SP2
AMD Turion(TM) 64 ML-37 (2.0GHz/1MB L2 Cache)
14.0 WXGA BrightView Widescreen (1280x768)
ATI RADEON(R) XPRESS 200M w/productivity ports
1.0GB DDR SDRAM (2x512MB)
80 GB 5400 RPM Hard Drive
8x DVD+/-RW/R & CD-RW Combo w/Double Layer Support
54g(TM) 802.11b/g WLAN w/ 125HSM/SpeedBooster(TM)
12 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
6-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader
5.38 lbs, $1300 (roughly)
Also, anyone know of a retailer offering a laptop with the ML40?

No retailer currently as the turions are new. Exempt from online retailers. The L2000 is a good buy. But i don't like the plastic look. Proably very durable though

Even on I think that unit hit 999 on some page I saw. I've yet to touch the L2000, but it's the same basic look/design of the v2000 series which I know people like. It's clean and you'll like the way it looks.

If I was buying today, the L2000 would be on the top of my list. Right now I have an R3000 from the office. It it goes back...
