recomendation for a laptop?

Hi, i am buying a laptop and i'd like a recomendation.

I need a at least a 20GB hard drive. A video card that can do duel monitor. DVD is a must. 2 USB is a must. Firewire would be nice also but it must be like 1 usb and 1 firewire port. A pentium III 700 or higher. I need at least 128MB of RAM. and at least a 14.1 screen size. 56k modem i need also.

Does anyone have any recommendations? my price limit is 2000, 2500 is stretching it.

I need this laptop for college/business.

  2. You should look into the ECS I-Buddy, they have nice prices with even nicer performance specs. You could find what you're looking for at a price of about $1,600 with a Pentium4 1GHz +... AOpen makes nice ones too... contact me if you're looking for more specifics.
  3. this is super old? this is 2 years ago?

  4. Yes, it's old, but I too do have the same doubt. Which one is a good brandname laptop should I buy? (I'll decide accordingly to your recommendations when it comes to price and performance comparisions)
    What are your recommendations for now? Please!
    Thanks in advanced,

  5. oh you want a recomendation for a laptop?

    if size and weight isn't an issue and power is, get a dell. If size and weight does matter get one of those sony slim designs. I think dell sells those too.

    What do u need a laptop for? I bought one and i ended up selling it for 1/3 the cost. I hope you have a good use for it cos they arn't cheap!
