After debating about this for a LONG time I have decided to get an HP. I just can't bring myself to spend over $2300 on a comparable PB. I feel like I have betrayed my country . This is the computer below. HP DV4000 Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP Home Edition with SP2 Intel(R) Pentium(R) M Processor 770 (2.13 GHz) FREE Upgrade to 15.4" WXGA BrightView Widescreen! 128MB ATI MOBILITY(TM) RADEON(R) X700 256MB DDR2 SDRAM (1x256MB) 80 GB 5400 RPM Hard Drive DVD+/-RW/R & CD-RW Combo w/Double Layer Support Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG & Bluetooth(TM) FREE Second 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery!! 1-year HP Accidental Damage Protection with Express Repair extended service plan All for $1554 Shipped. As soon as I get it I have a 1GB stick of DDR2 ram waiting for it. I just can't sit around and wait for the PBs to update so I'll get something that will do the full job.
