Hi guys - I'm sure this has been asked before, but I haven't found anything relevant to my situation. I've been doing some laptop hunting and I was originally going to stick to the PC world, but I think I might take the leap to the good life. I'll be using my laptop for day to day use, academic apps (XP), and as the heart of a Home Theater setup. I have a few concerns: Video capability. I would like to power a 46" LCD at 1080p with the little guy - what would be the minimum suggested hardware to accomplish this? I would also like to push a visualizer to the screen; I know this is very GPU demanding and I'm concerned that a non-dedicated card won't be able to handle this. Audio capability. I'm interested in pushing 5.1 Surround to the HT speakers through a receiver - would you suggest getting an external sound adapter? I'm looking to spend the least money possible, but I want to enjoy these pleasures fully without issue, so any suggestions are valuable. Thanks for your time .
