would laptops be generally more expensive after the launch date, if they come preloaded with win7?
i think so too... hahaa...
by the way a little ot... how much is the lightroom software now? I dun seem to see it on sale in stores.
any recommendations for laptops? im actually looking at the nus laptops discussion review in hwz, not impressive
(currently own an acer tm... very very much heat producing product...it shuts itself down without warning if overheated.)

im afraid not much... around 2k+.... something that is not so heat productive
i use my laptop mainly for surfing (flash intensive?), photo editing (photoshop), video editing
hardware move so fast, hard to keep track, most of the names now sound so foreign
As for spec ... almost all the same, since price is fix, next better find a laptop which service center is near to ur place or they provide pick up and return.
Dell is not bad actually, as their quality is getter better n got local tech support. HP/compaq is more of entertainment set, ASUS is Gamer laptop, Acer "best forget it" not good. Fuji expensive, toshiba so so .. haha
I wanna to wait a month or so to wait for them to pre-install Win7 first.
I was thinking there is no point in doing an upgrade from my 3year old notebook running on XP. Battery is already half dead, upgrade to Win7 cost more than 200bucks. And new machine means faster workflow, with at least 4GB ram and newer processor.
Do not be afraid [of ghost and bullies] Shoot them......
Since jumping from XP to Win 7 I've actually installed all my systems with Win 7. My main desktop runs on the 64bit version. All 32bit apps installs and runs perfect. The only 64bit app in my desktop is Eset NOD32 antivirus.
My mainboard doesn't support virtualization so the XP mode doesn't work but I've used VMware workstation and "reinstall" my XP from it.
Up until now all portable apps created using VMware Thinapps doesn't work on Win 7. So using a virtual pc with vmware is the only way. I had to add 4gb ram to my system to ensure no memory bottlenecks, so now running on 8gb ram.
My only concern is how much I need to cough out when this Win 7 RC trial ends, but kinda worth it so far, unlike Vista. Now thinking of the possibility of getting the ATI HD5870 card that supports eyefinity. Running 2 monitors one with Win 7 desktop and another on XP running via VMware on one PC. Hmmmmm, endless possibility, only my pocket suffers.

On top of the RAM limitation, a 64 bit OS is more secure than 32 bit OS, it is much more difficult for hackers to mess with a 64bit OS on certain security aspect.
