As some of you may know from my previous posts, I am researching notebooks and components. I'd like to get some peoples recommendations for a notebook around $2000. The things I find important in order of importance are:
1. Quality
2. Performance/Speed (Work & Play)
3. Battery Life
4. Size/Weight (Mobile but not Ultra light).
5. Display
6. Graphics Performance (Like Games, but not a big gamer).

Here is a list of notebooks I've considered:

IMB T40
Dell 600m
Gateway 450X
Gateway 200 (integrated video - doesn't sound good)

I guess what it comes down to is trade offs if I want to stay within a price range. For a laptop, I really want good performance since I'll be using it to do work that may be demanding at times. My old laptop is a Toshiba with a 16 MB ATI card and it plays games okay, but not like a good desktop. If I really wanted to be a big gamer, I'd buy a desktop as well :-) I guess if people have some good/bad experiences with notebooks please let me know and definately let me know if you heard of a good options I've missed.

Thanks,

Eric

I agree on the Dell Inspiron 600m, but perhaps you should also look at the Dell Latitude D600, which is all but the same thing.

Yeah, but the D600 isn't available for personal education discount, unless you call.
