I'm too poor for this thinkpad business lolI have heard that the Toshiba Satellite is supposed to be a pretty good laptop. They definitely seem to be recommended over HP, anyway. Plus they look kinda cool (which you cannot say for the Thinkpad).The A135 series seems to be the way to go, from what I've read. They seem to run $500-$800 or so.

Here is the print screen of an example. I didnt bold a word here though. I'm not sure how these pictures will turn out on your monitor though...but it's better than nothing. Make sure that your browser DOES NOT re-size these pictures. Firefox and IE tend to re-size the picture to fit the page. You can fix this by just zooming to 100%.http://uploader.ws/upload/200707/word_document.jpgI know it says 100% on the picture, but it is 125%This is what a web page looks like in IE at 125%.http://uploader.ws/upload/200707/web_page.jpgThe fonts actually look pretty clear. The advertisement on the right is a bit pixelated though.My vision isnt too horrible -- I do need glasses to look at a blackboard from far away -- and to watch a movie in a theater, but I find that I don't have too much difficulty reading text at 100% on my screen.Hope this helps!
I went with "thoseotherguys" and bought a Dell XPS 1330 today. I'm so happy!
