Heh, since everyone else was posting all the cool stuff they were buying - I have to make my own thread too

I just put down an order for a Compaq Presario V2000 notebook computer



I've been a Dell guy for years - but I just came to the conclusion that Dell sucks ass. Three Inspirons later - I've learned my lesson on going for a fourth laptop from that company.

Anyway, I think this is the closest "non crap" (by crap, I mean Apple) machine to an iBook that's out there. 14 inches and about 5.5 pounds. Which is about the only reason that I'm buying one The 15 pound monstrosity that I'm used to lugging around are getting on my nerves. Those small Sony's and IBM laptops are too expensive

I'll probably be picking up an IBM laptop soon, unless the dual core apple powerbook g4's come out before I buy. As much as I abused my current "laptop", I think I need the drop and spill protection offered by IBM. This "laptop" no longer has a backlight on the LCD, so I can't see anything on it and it would cost $800 to fix. Orange Juice got spilled in it and poof, but it still works as a desktop.
