I'm going to be off to college after this school year. I'm looking for a decent laptop (preferably by Acer, Cyberpower, Winbook, or Toshiba) that can handle some moderate gaming (plugged into AC) but can give me some kickass battery life for college. I prefer laptops which you can put 2 batteries in, but one 12-cell would be enough IMHO.
Current Base System is:
:arrow: Turion MT-40 2.2 GHz
:arrow: Hitachi 80 Gig 7,200 rpm hard drive
:arrow: 1 Gig DDR400 CAS 2.5 Latency on 1 chip memory so you can upgrade in the future
:arrow: a/b/g/G+ 108 MBps Internal wireless with 2 antenna and built in RangeMax extender
:arrow: 15.4" Glossy WSXGA Widescreen
:arrow: ATI x700 PCI Express Video card with 128 MB dedicated GDDR# memory
:arrow: Magnesium Alloy Case
:arrow: 8 Cell battery, lasts about 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 hours
Since you are going to school next fall, I will have a new system by then. This is absolutely KILLER and I should have it available in March 2006: March 2006 Base System

Price unknown at this point, but if you go to the site you can email me right on the configuration page.
I also offer a 17" model so if I can be of service, let me know!
