sager is a good brand. They use Clevos like alienware does
1. Have you ever used 2 Gigs of RAM in a productivity environment I sure know it helps me alot when it comes to my forays into 3D development land

2. Yes but all the ones I was linking too have a 2.16ghz C2D

3. He isn't using it for gaming, read the first post, it is for "3d applications programs + video/sound editing"

My dad's T60p had both the pencil eraser mouse (which I love) and the touch pad.

His T60p has:

Core Duo T2500
2GB DDR2-667 Micron D9 chips (unheard of in proprietary systems)
ATI FireGl V5200 (AKA- one of the top workstation GPUs out there)
120GB 7200RPM SATA3.0 16MB Cache WD
15.4" 1600x1200 screen

Not only did it come with that, the system had a build in motion sensor which sensed, in real time, the forces on the laptop and applied tension to the HDD to keep it perfectly balanced at all times. It has a security chip that locks the harddrive if you try to take it out of the case without authorization, artery scanning finger print reader, every wireless signal you can imagine (2- A/B/G adapters, that is right 2 of them, Bluetooth, RF, IR, WAN). The computer also comes with a security chip that monitors your CPU's location. It is impossible to steal and get away with.




By the way, ever look at a Mac Book Pro?

This one's pretty loaded, plus a 20 inch screen and raid-0! It's a little over budget but I'm sure you could make up the diff. http://www.memoryexpress.com/index.p...ctID=9124&SID=

20" screen on a laptop? That is the farthest thing from portable I have ever seen, ever.

You might look at the Asus G1 I was just reading about $1800 usd.
http://www.notebooks.com/?p=248
Good value @ $1800usd +/-
The bad is a Geforce Go 7700 512 mb non upgradable with the G1 15" monitor, or a Radeon x1700 512 Mb with the G2 17" monitor.

I'm running a Killernotebook, but it's well outside your price range ($3200+/-).... btw; I use the notebook both at the office and at home for gaming. At the office, running autocad and such, I also use a Matrox triplehead2go feeding 3 monitors for a desktop size of 3840x1024 plus the laptop screen (4 monitors total kiddos). I picked Killernotebooks because he's great at support, the machines are top notch (Clevo base), and it doesn't look "gamer" in an office type environment: no leds or fancy graphics, but a 3dMark06 of 5260 ... but my exact setup would quickly double your budget.

Yes, almost every laptop (even the real cheap ones) has a vga or dvi out jack on them (dvi for the 570u). So you can run an external monitor and/or the laptop monitor through graphics settings.... my old Dell laptop with a Nvidia 2xxx even had the jack. All that matrox box really does is take a single vga input and splits it across three monitors. The computer still thinks it's just outputting to a single external monitor (with unique resolutions )
