I checked the Where to Buy link on nVidia's website for GeForce based laptops, but I was wondering if there are any other places to check for said laptops. I have been checking out Dell and Toshiba, but I was wondering if there might be any other places that sell them. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Phyre

I've had HP,Toshiba, Compaq, IBM and Dell laptops.

I like Dell and Toshiba the best. Toshiba's are good bang for the bucks.
I got my 2805-S402 on a closeout deal I saved 500 bucks under the sell price. It's got a GF2 go in it. 16meg.
Still does all I need it to. 850 P3 with 256megs of ram and XP.
Burner/DVD etc.
I've had it 2 years and no problems at all. This is my second toshiba and I will buy one for my next. :)

So far, I'm liking the Toshiba. I'm thinking of getting this one.

I'm hoping that I might be able to get them to load Windows 2000 SP3 on there. I abhor Windows XP. It's too user friendly for me. I'm also thinking of getting either another hard drive for Linux or just partitioning 30 gigs for Windows and 30 gigs for Linux. I'm not too sure on that as of now.

A lot of the guys in the NVIDIA marketing department have new Samsung laptops. I think the new Samsung S-10 series have the MAP17 GPU.

Thanks for the help guys. At this point, I will probably go with the Toshiba. I would like to see those Samsung S-10 notebooks, but I can't find anything on Samsung's website or Google.

Thanks,
