Got $1500 to spend. Dell has some decent looking Mobile for around $1,500. Curious does anyone know how upgradable they are. I mean a few months from now when business picks up can I install a better video card or faster processor? Will it require a new MB?
Three CD-R's are running on their side...running on their side. Need graphics? Check my (very poor) website.
Dell is the most upgradeable notebook I have ever come across. I bought my Inspiron 8200 for just over $1500 as follows:
Intel Pentium 4-m 1.7GHz
15.1" UXGA TFT LCD
384MB PC2100 DDR
ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 64MB
30GB IBM Deskstar
8x DVD (fixed)
24x CD-R/RW (modular)
3 hrs Batt life, 6 hrs with 2 Batts
3DMark 2001 - 7050 (Defaults)
The graphics card is upgradeable, infact people who've owned a similar (But much older) Inspiron 8000, have upgraded from their ATI M4 graphics card, to a GeForce2Go, to a ATI Mobility Radeon 7500, to a GeForce4Go, to a ATI Mobility Radeon 9000, while still keeping their original Pentium3 800MHz and original motherboard. The HDD's, and removeable drives are all upgradeable or swappable/easy to access, as well as RAM and MINI-PCI cards (modems, LAN, Wireless etc.)
Who's General Failure and why's he reading my disk?
