I am looking for a laptop that I can use to watch movies from time to time. Screen quality is most important although I want it to be with these specs (min.):
Centrino 2 (P8400 is sufficient)
DDR3 RAM (I guess DDR2 is okay, though)
GPU can be Nvidia or ATI (but, I will use Linux on it so maybe I should really look for Nvidia?)
Wifi card: agn N-wireless (was looking at Intel 5300)
Screen Resolution: WSXGA+ ???? (please recommend)
LCD Type: prefer LED Backlight
So, are there any that fit all of these requests? I can't seem to find one. There's always one spec that is omitted or not included.
The closest I've seen is the Sony Vaio Z570 and Z590 series which is only lacking the Intel wifi card 5300 but it does have the 5100.
I am also interested in the upcoming Dell Studio XPS 13 and XPS 1640 line. I think there will be a M1340 as well to come out. I thought I might wait to see what these are like but if you can recommend a laptop, that would be appreciated!
I will not do much gaming on but it's a general-purpose notebook, multimedia (movies/music) and I was going to pursue something portable but maybe I should just choose whatever one has all the specs I want and which has decent quality?
I can't decide yet! If you could offer some ideas, that would help!!
