Yes yes, not a Mac purchase, but since so many are cross platform here I'm hoping someone may be able to offer some input. Long story short, we're all chipping in to get my brother a laptop (including him!), the 'family' PC is getting to be a pain in the arse (monitor on its way out, keeps over heating etc). He's at the age now where he wants to be in his room, which my parents will now allow thanks to SafeEyes, but at the same time it's nice if he isn't stuck in one place, and can work downstairs. So a laptop it is. For the money a Centrino laptop does offer much more than anything from Apple, plus the fact that simple things like MSN (that he uses heavily) are significantly better featured on Windows (for use with his friends), and all the free MMORPG's etc are on Windows which he loves. So that's my justification for a Windows laptop out the way So far the best I've found is a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M 1437G. For £906 you get... 1.86GHz Pentium M 750 (2MB Cache) 1GB DDR2 RAM 80GB SATA HDD 5400RPM 128MB PCI-E ATi X700 15.4" 1280x800 Display Dual Layer DVD-RW + all the usual suspects, FireWire, USB2, Wireless, 4 in 1 card reader, XP Home etc. Pretty impressive specs I think, but just on the off chance anyone can think of anything better for that price point or less, I thought I'd ask quickly. Thanks!
