I look around and the 1TB drive offerings are usually a little on the slow side. Look again at 640 and 750 HDDs but at 7200 so you won't feel the hit. Surely you can leave something off the machine?
I'm after a 1 TB laptop. I don't care which make or what it looks like. Ideally a good processor and 8GB memory. Other than that, as cheap as possible. Any ideas?
