geeky tech friends always say this about technology"no way man, buy a sweet desktop instead!" fag, I dont want a desktop, I need a reliable laptop"well then buy this alienware one, its only like 3000 dollars"fag, I dont need a laptop that plays world of warcraft and weighs 12 pounds"well then dont ask me what computer to buy"... sh*t is irritating

I know I was in the group of tech geeks with that problem once. Then I realized not everyone can be their own tech support and wants to game at the expense of battery life and heat.

I'm about to pull the trigger on an X60 (I really want portability). Here are the specs:Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5500 (1.66GHz, 2MB L2, 667MHz FSB)XP Professional1 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz SODIMM Memory (2 DIMM)80GB Hard Disk Drive, 5400rpm Serial ATA (2.5") Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABGI'm going to GW and I'm thinking of buying the office software later, maybe from the school if it's available. Any suggestions?
jeeebus i know dells arent up to par as a thinkpad (consistently up to par, though mine has been fine 2.5 yrs in)....but i can literally get 2 dell laptops with similar performance for how much you paid for your thinkpad. No flame.....but just trying to put it into perspective. i know the thinkpad lovers r gonna hate me....but cmon. if you just backup your important data on an external or something...you should be ok.
