    hi everyone... i'm planning to buy a laptop

    it should have:
    processor clock > 2 GHz
    ram >= 256 MB
    hard disk >= 40 GB
    a good graphic card (1)
    an infrared adapter
    a cd-rw and dvd-r
    a lan 10/100

    but, above all, it has to cost no more than 1300 euros (ok, i can go
    to 1400, but not more)

    (1) i think it can be an ati mobility or nvidia geforce go, it need to
    be 3d accelerated and fast enough to run videos and 3d models... i'm
    not an architect, i just want to run smoothly some ia/robotic
    simulation... i think they are a lot simpler than a full-of-fx game of
    today... oh well, if i can play too it will be better :-D

    i have to use it to
    - navigate www
    - use office apps
    - compile c/c++ programs, run java apps, python, and so on
    - view videos
    - run both win2k and linux (mandrake)
    - other things that don't require much performances

    i'm thinking about Toshiba Satellite A60-332... what do you think?

    I suggest you read the reviews for those laptops that meet the requirements
    you described. Opinions you may receive here may not be well founded in
