iBuyPower looks scary, haha, but the price sure was right, but I guess that's just it...
1680*1050, 2GB PC5300, nVidia 7600 Go, 100GB hdd @ 7200 rpm ... $1,566.
Also, their website has no support documents, and a few specs missing from the laptop, that are fairly important:
-battery life (with pre-defined parts, as I suppose the 7200 drive might use a bit more then the 5400 etc)
-memory speed for the graphics
-weight (again with predefined parts)
Looking at Ava now...looks to be ~+$700 for the same specs, but will play around a bit...
Thanks for the links!
