    Looking for a light Centrino Dell laptop. Need a laptop that has the "mic
    boost" option for the soundcard, will be using this laptop to record voice.
    Most laptops don't have good soundcards. Does anyone have a 600m and does it
    have the "mic boost" option? Most laptops are lousy recorders. I am using a
    top of the line microphone, currently, and a Toshiba works well in
    recording but otherwise the Toshiba is not a reliable laptop (what a shock.)
    Looking at Dell's, currently.
    Thanks in advance,

    If you're looking for a light laptop, then look at the IBM X40. Under 3
    pounds. I have lots of Dell desktops, but my laptop is an X40.

    And I just checked a Mic Boost IS a configurable option.

    Hi laptops with good soundcards are rare.
    For laptops, best options are an external DSP module (USB 2).

    Personnally I used to record voice with a dedicated microphone
    with integrated DSP and the result was amazing !
    You can get such microphone for few bucks : Plantronics DSP 300.

    This let you the opportunity to choose the laptop independantly.
