Default good laptops

aight all im thinkin bout getting a new laptop, my current one isnt worth talking about, and i want something thats gonna last me a good while.
So:
good processor (amd64 maybe)
512 ram or more
ati mobility for upgrades
> 40gigs

and the standard dvd cdr/w drive and all that stuff.
ive found this one

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...Tab=0&NoMapp=0

which looks pretty good but its a bit pricey if u guys know one thas good but a bit cheaper that would be awsome

the acer ferrari got so-so reviews in last months PC Mag. If you're dropping that on a laptop, you can get much better performance.

Hey man youd be better of with something like this, and its less money.

I've seen one and used it. The screen is insane and it comes with the numpad (only sager does that i think) thats why i like them.

Acer Ferrari = you pay the price for looks, its just like, you may find Honda's manufacturing better engines, but they lack jaw dropping looks like ferrari has, so ferrari has taken advantage of looks, same applies to laptop.

at this price, you can get best in most expensive laptops, that are of course IBM's.

else many manufacturers will give u good hardware in this price.

paint yourself your laptop in RED.

Acer Mercedes Benz, Acer Ferrari, Acer Lambourghini, S***.
