    Has anyone run either server OS on the Inspiron 8600 or 5150?

    I'd like to buy a notebook that can run Windows 2000 Server or Windows 2003
    Server and I'm trying to find out if Dell has any current laptop models that
    unofficially support either OS.

    In the past, I've had a Toshiba Tecra's that had no problem running Windows
    2000 Server and NT 4.0... Performance isn't the biggest deal in the world
    since this is just for my own development, maybe for some consulting work
    but not for production use. But I will need a gig of memory and that rules
    out some of the Dell notebooks.

    Thanks for any insight.

    I've not run Server on those systems, but I run server on many laptops
    from Dell - Buy a couple spare drives and load the OS that you want on
    each drive and then you can swap them in/out as needed for development.
