    moving this to tech...

    I bought my son this one for College:
    Acer Travelmate 4504 TM4504LMi

    Windows XP Professional Edition, CyberLink Power DVD
    1.8 GHz Pentium M processor, 400 MHz front side bus
    1 GB 333 MHz memory, 100 GB hard drive, DVD-Dual drive
    3 USB 2.0, FireWire, S-Video TV-out, fast infrared, connector for optional Port Replicator III
    Intel Extreme Graphics graphics controller, Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG, 10/100 LAN, 56K data/fax modem
    I paid $1217 for it from

    3rd Acer Notebook in the house. I've actually adopted mine as my Home use PC and let the Super Screamer Desktop gather dust and handle print jobs...

    I run the TM 45021LMi and the only difference was that I get an 80GB HD and 512 RAM instead of his GiG. Mine runs around 800 right now.

    We've been using one at work for a couple of far, it is doing better than any laptop we've had, to include sustained battery life.
