Well, don't bother your little head with it ... just ask the nearest
barbie doll to make a decision fer ya.

No - just the same as nobody can tell you which car engine you prefer.

I like P3M or celeron (M) of some kind. Never a P4. It depends on what
yo' want - a maserati or a SUV. Which DO you want?

Why? What are your requirements? You have to state those and then
create a spec that meets those requirements and then look for a model
that meets your spec.

I like brown ones.

What are their criteria for saying so? Weight? Color? Smell?
Longevity? Resale value? Etherial resonance?

Sounds a bit too fast for me - but otherwise OK. I'd get a 64 bit
machine if I had money to burn. But then if I had money to burn I'd
have slaves to do my development work for me, and palaces to live in,
and I wouldn't care what the slaves typed on, or why.

No. The differences are what they state on the web page - but why do
you care? Until you say what concerns you, how can anyone spec for you
what would suit you? If I were you I would go and read reviews and
figure out from that what might or not be of concern to you.

HP - bleuugh. Well, I'd say that to anything except an IBM, since me
no careee about looks or features or anything except the presence of a
keyboard and a screen and the absence of weight and the presence of a
long life battery and the knowledge that I can fix it myself if it

Sounds fine to me. What do you need so many MB for? I've never needed more
than about 4 at max to draw a screen on. Are the rest some sort of
"reserve"? I think this is getting like the soundcard races, where
the number of "voices" on a soundcard went up from 16 to 32 to 64 to
128 to 256 to 512 .... and all by magic (there was no change in
hardware - it's all it the firmware downloads), and all without doing
anything for anyone.

Ahhhhhh - a gamer! Welll, that's diffferent! You need to go read some
gaming magazine laptop reviews. Decide what you want based on those.
