    Go for Acer. It's 2 Hour servicing is good. I feel that XP is more stable. Vista is still pretty new and there may be some compatibility issues with some websites, especially if you do Internet Banking.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I have issues with acer's plastic body and general build quality... Go for one with at least 1gb of ram, 80gb of HD space and a decent screen. Most laptops have pretty bad LCD's (low contrast/colour saturation). And yes stick to XP for now.

    you mean the one selling at almost $10,000 one izzit?

    I always see siemens people using it.

    IBM T60p have very nice LCD.

    can go up to 1600x1200 for 15" model.

    stick with XP.

    I gotten vista biz edition, its horrible.

    reformat the IBM to xp instead.

    geta macbook. for PC notebook, id go for ibm thinkpad. not the sexiest looking notebooks, but they get the job done and have been very reliable for me.

    i would stick with XP... frankly, the only reason to switch to vista right now for me would be for D10 games, which arent really even out. and really, you wont be playing those on ur notebook in any event. vista which just suck more resources from your system in any event.
