haha..the guy at Futureshop *eek*, said I should not go for an AMD processor.. :( I'm thinking of going for a Toshiba..seems like the highest quality for a couple hundred dollars more. Good plan? It would be the Toshiba Satellite Intel Pentium M 750 1.86GHz Laptop (M50-MX5). If you have any final comments, that would be cool. I'm about to take the plunge tomorrow!
