Oh dear god, get a Vostro 1500

Mine is holding up very well and you get a 8600M GT, and i think its around the same price range as that in the US.

I paid £600 6 months ago
Vostro 1500

does the monteniva platform not count?

if i remember correctly, 1066 MHZ FSB with DDR3 RAM support (i think)
uhhh the new CPU's have a lower thermal output with the cheapest of the batch being like 2.xx GHz

Montevina/Centrino 2 is coming July, but i dont think it'll be cheap. Why is your buddy buying laptops from newegg? Build it from the company's website, that way you dont have to pay for stuff you dont need. And if your buddy wants to keep this laptop for 5 years i suggest atleast an 8600M GT/8700M GT GPU since laptop gpu's are not upgradable and the integrated X3100 is a POS, unless all he plays is tetris. there were some good deals on dell vostro's, dont know if they're still there.

My friend doesn't really care about gaming or wi-max. Is there anything else besides that. And aren't the current C2D chips faster than the new centrino chips to come? I'm speaking about a 1.83ghz
