    In the Market for new Laptop

    I need your opinions from your experiences on reliabilty of brands and so forth.

    First off I do not wish to spend more than $1500 total.
    I wish to receive at a minimum the following options.

    Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo T5600(1.83GHz/2MB L2Cache)
    22GB DDR2 System Memory
    I really like HP's screens. I have a HP f1905 and is super crispy in the dark!
    I do not want a lot of prebunled software. I would prefer XP, but an willing to try Vista. I do not want any of the 2007 office stuff, I own the 2003 suite it is fine for my needs.
    Hard drive does not matter, DVD/CD just entry level for todays stuff.
    I would like upgrade video GeForce prefered 6 series.
    I must have a replacement 2 year accident included.

    I have an HP mapped out custome for $1300 as follows

    Do you guys have any better ideas, or suggestions?

    Well, what do you plan to use it for?

    You have already hit on my big thing-making sure that the warranty is for a reasonable period of time.

    I like my HP-it is one of the business class machines, a 6125 NX. Came with a three year factory warranty built in.

    Personal home computing, with a bit of gaming (small amount of free time I have), and school work with my 2003 office suite.
    I think the pc will work out just fine.
