Now I got all this DDR2 ram, I'm not getting an AMD dual core until the M2 comes out.
And since DDR2 is now getting lower latecies and closing the gap with ddr, this new dual core would be the best one yet, running it with ddr2.

Hi,

thanks for all the replies, and I think you've convinced me away from dell.

This is what I'm thinking:

Processor: AMD64 Athlon X2 4400+ 2Mb
Memory: 1.0GB DDR 400mhz
Optical Drive: 16x Sony Double-Layer DVD+/-RW and 52x CD-RW
PCI-Express Graphics card: ATI Radeon X800GTO PCI-E 256MB
Operating System: Geniune Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

Those are the main things I'm thinking about now.

What do you guys think about these specs? I mean, is the graphics card going to work out, and the processor?

Thanks for your continued help, I'm getting really confused between the options and stuff, and now I've got my parents asking me about which laptop would be the best for them......

Anyway,

Thanks,

Charlie -

You might want to check out the 850, it's quite a bit faster than the 800. If money's an issue you might try finding one on ebay, or getting one that's refurbished, as long as it's still under warranty. Other than that the system looks good, I'll trade you. lol
