I was thinking about that today. I've had a lot of laptops I've HATED and was relieved to replace, but my first laptop, which had a 'realistic' combination of portability and capability, was one of my favorites. It was a Dell Inspiron 3700; this is a late 90's computer. It has a PIII @ 500MHz, 128Mb SDRAM (@ 100MHz clock speed), 8MB ATI video card, 10GB hard drive, 14.1 inch TFT Active Matrix (1024x768), Windows 98 SE, a 24/8x CD AND DVD burner, lith-ion batteries (capable of running 2), did not have a built in floppy drive, had a boat load of ports (yet only 1 USB) and weighed a not so heavy at the time 6.5 pounds. Oh yeah, and it costs over $4,500, but at the time, it was far ahead of other computers and was one of the best reviewed at the time. This is when Dell was rather small BTW. Check it! It was revolutionary in that it did not have a built in phone modem and instead used a built in 10/100 network card. It was also one of the first computers to look 'modern' and to be designed to be 'pretty' (Apple was the only other at the time actually). It was Dell's first touch-pad, which they did a surprisingly good job with, but it also had the pointer stick. It was also their first multi-color customized computer. It's sound was impressive and to date was the best sound system I've ever had on a laptop. That thing was a tank and it got me through all of high school and a year of college before I upgraded (well...errrr) to another Dell. I got rid of it a few years later and looking back I really regret it. That computer was so awesome and if I had it, I'd mount it on the wall or use it as a weapon against home intruders. I've considered trying to find one, but everyone wants $200 or more for it!!!!!!! Come on, its almost a decade and a half old! Anyone else got any good computer/electronic attachment stories?
