post #11 of 15
ok dude

i had the choice of a dv2000 or a dv5000
the dv6000 has a T5500 C2D w/2GB RAM and intec craphics 945i

this thing kicks arse... im pretty sure all best buys have simalarly configured computers nation wide.

go see what you can find

and the dv6000 was priced at $1050, i got it for free as my ZV5000 died on me

Yes its a sony and I know that these boards are full of sony haters, but they do make a pretty decent laptop. I work in a store repair center and I've seen almost every single brand of laptop come through here and I've probably seen sony's come through here the least. There are a few negatives to this particular laptop, mostly being that it doesn't have a dvdrw and I'm not sure about the video cards since it says it has a gma and an nvidia card in it. However it will give you excellent battery life because of the core duo and the small screen.

yeah i have that also and i love it except for the crappy intel graphics i wish i could upgrade. i might have to get a new motherboard to get new graphics wich is anoying because everything else in this laptop is amazing. i wish they would make express card graphics card because those connect to the computer through a PCI-e 1x slot which would be good enough for me.

i actually bought the DV 2000 and had problems with it so i returned it and bought the dv 6000 for $50 more because it was the last one they had and it gave me errors every time i tried to open any kind of program.

thanks for the feed back.. i'll have to hold on to this laptop as it's passed the return policy, but i did buy the warranty and hopefully it will break down four times within the next three years and i can get my money back... but yea, i had to take out media center because of the crashing and install pro.. come to mention, this laptop does crash when inserting cd's occasionally, i'll have to bring it to best buy next time and let them know...
