I'm in search of a laptop for my boss, and he has some specific wants. He wants dual core, 17" display, docking station, a big brand (HP, Compaq, IBM, Dell, etc.) and Windows Vista. Do you know where I can start looking? Any suggestions with model numbers?

Thanks.

Does your boss have a price range to work with?

Don't really have a price range to work with - under $3000, I guess.
Thank you tekzor, that looks great! What model did you start with?

Thanks!
