    How to Choose Laptop?

    Hi all, I'm Planning to buy a laptop in range of $1000. But i don't really expert in choosing laptop since we can't customise it by ourself. So, i need your idea what brand of laptop do you recomm me? how to choose? what processor? PIV, Centrino, Celeron, or AMD XP? What makes Centrino better than PIV? Since we know PIV is faster than Centrino, if we refer to Clock speed. What ghrapic chipset do you recomm me? ATI or NVIDIA?

    So far I have a few choices;
    Packard Bell
    AMD XP 2400+
    Integrated Graphic (Shared Mem)
    256MB DDR

    NEC
    Centrino 1.4Ghz
    Integrated Graphic(Shared Mem)
    256MB DDR

    BenQ
    Centrino 1.4GHz
    ATI Radeon Mobility 9000 32MB
    256MB DDR

    HP/Compaq
    PIV 2.2GHz
    Ati Radeon Chipset 64MB
    256MB DDR


    If Centrino 1.4GHz vs. PIV 2.4GHz, which one is faster, or in term of stability, can run many programs at one time. Why ?

    Thanks all...... I need your help....

    cross posting won't help.. it sometimes makes it worse.. I'd stick with the thread in hardware.

    One piece of advice.

    Stick with namebrands. It will pay off in the long run.

    toshiba's are good too.. I'd stay away from dell's, P bell's .. hp's might be ok (but i doubt it), NEC's are still questionable.. maybe ok.. really.. with a laptop, it's always a question of upgradablity, reliability, and the companies history of support.

    My overall choice would be an IBM.. for support and reliability..
    but I've always secretly wanted a sony vaio.. and sony has come a long way.
