do you <i>really </i>need the laptop? i kno i was drawn into the appeal of portability but soon thereafter relized that i can get twice the power for half the price, and can always upgrade very easily later. laptops are a pain in the arse to upgrade (beyong ram and hdd)

I for one know I could live w/o my laptop. It is for the most part with me 24/7 for school work, internet, and gaming. Its not great, but it gets the job done. And when im at home, it makes one hell of a decent folder. <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> Also, that laptop would allow you to get by, its not great, but its nothing to sneeze at either.
