Probably better.  I just configured an x60s and it's only like $100 cheaper now than when I bought it last year at 4th of July, so I'm guessing the July 4th sale will be better.

psh...he doesn't even have a party hat.

He ate it.

Then he pooped it back out, and sniffed it. He enjoyed the smell.

At least he didn't eat it (again)...

OK so I am still hung up on buying a small laptop and then getting a monitor to use at home. I bought a wireless keyboard but so far, I have nothing else.

So, I'm wondering what resolution I should go for on the monitor. Can I get good res with a big screen for a couple hundred bucks?

I have eye problems so I def need a big screen but I'm also too small to carry a 17" laptop. Thoughts?

Yes you can.  Dell has some nice displays.

A question for the technically savvy:

The University of Miami recommends buying a laptop with at least 2.0 GHz of processor speed.  Most of the computers I have been looking at with dual core processors only operate at 1.7 or so.  Does this number really matter?  Also, anyone have comments on the AMD Turion 64 dual core x2s?  VS the Intel model?
