Thinking of getting a laptop for my FYP, just for 2 months, den would most likely be a studio PC to do image transfer & viewing...

So wats a good IBM compatible laptop... (note: IBM COMPATIBLE... cos not willing to get a powerbook or ibook as most of my project require ibm compatible formats), i'd rather skimp abit of features for a better display... and best if its thin & light kind...

guess most of it would be...

ATI Radeon display processor...
1Gig Ram
Centrino/P4-M
Bluetooth / WiFi
CD/DVD burner??

oh ya... best is cost below 3k... hopefully below 2.5k... (must be dreaming...) ;p

I just bought a Fujitsu notebook that cost below $3,000. I think the screem is great, very bright and more resolution. You might want to look for the following features too:-
a) 15.4" screen
b) at least 4 hours battery life

Alternatively, a Toshiba would be great too, but very expensive.

i kinda sick of Sony irregardless of their so called superior products... dun wanna go there with a few possible hot spot on the LCD and end up with a comment like, can you live with it? or maybe the bluetooth or Wifi dun work and they say, does it affect your normal usage?

nevertheless... Sony Vaio does pop into the pic... S series... hmm.. there is another 1 rite...

Sony S28... :thumbsup: :thumbsup: but 3.9K
Wow .. that's a very little machine, packed with power. But I encountered a small problem with this mean machine. Its heat generation is hugh, and the table top got hot very fast. Probably need a good heat disspation kit to channel the heat away... Otherwise, this would be a great laptop!

Saw fujitsu lineup, strange is every laptop they have uses the Intel Extreme graphics chipset that share the ram... so its like minus the Radeon already...

maybe go check out a Toshiba...

HP or Dell or Acer may have something. Biggest problem is the ****** LCD screen looks a hell of lot different from a CRT. Have not bite the bullet to get a Spyder to calibrate but my guess is that at the end of it all there willl still have a difference. If your color sensitive this could be a big issue.

any centrino 14 inch screen laptop should do. the IBM should have the extra light feature to shine on when typing in dark.

You can't do better then the screen of a high-end Vaio. Powerbooks included. This is the reason I keep buying Vaios. Even the lowend Vaios are very pleasent to look at.

I tried Toshiba once, I doubt if I will ever buy another one.

Pssttt.... You can't get an ultra portable with an external GPU, you'd get the Intel Extreme Graphics ones in there..... ;)

Acer 3202, with ATI 9700, but at 2.18kg.
Considering this model.

Btw, those with built-in Intel graphic, how good is the performance?

If you're looking for portability try Dell Latitude 700m best 12" screen this side of a 12" Powerbook.

Actually there's a Sony Vaio (not sure what the model number is) 13.3" widescreen, 64MB ATI Radeon 9700, only 1.86kg. Quite portable and powerful.

i've got veri bad experience with toshiba. hence won’t suggest.
my toshiba pda broke down in last than 1 1/2 years and labtop in 2 1/2 years.

worst still, toshiba tech support cant repair them but when i sent to simlim, i got it repair for a min price.

anyway, was told if need to get toshiba, don’t go for satellite- problematic

also, was told that acer is the cheapest to maintain among all.
