    About €1400 ($1660) in Germany for the MT34 version. Since the MT40 processor is only about $300 outright that should easily fit your budget. Now all you've got to do is find the MT40 version in the US.

    I've seen a similar specification to the one you listed (don't know about the graphics card though) for about £800 including our high sales taxes, so even with better graphics I wouldn't pay more than £900 ($1600)
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    I was thinking should i go with a intel laptop or an amd laptop because i can get a nice 2.13ghz with a 256mb graphics card with a better resolution and more ram for about the same price. Though i want to take into consideration about upgrading to vista(64bit). Or do you think ill need a new computer for vista anyways.

    why not buy a PC?

    well im waiting till vista and so on comes out so then i can buy a pc well accomadated to that. The reason why im asking all this is because my mom recently wants a laptop for work purposes (powerpoint, medical videos) and every day use. So she said that she wants a new Laptop and she said for me to pick one out for her. SO i want her to get a good laptop so my gaming needs will be satisfied until i get my new desktop which will prolly get in a year or so a couple months after vista come out.

    Putting your gaming wants on top of your moms work needs. That will add at least $500 if not $1000 to the price of the laptop. And if you're going to play online games with the laptop that will be a security risk to her work medical data.

    well she said i could use it too. Besides i just want her to buy a laptop that will last a while and besides im not going over the top with it.
