AMD...

would you really want a notebook that burned your lap after running at load for a few minutes?

Stick with low-heat PentiumIIIs!

You have to make sacrifices to use the best. Haha, well, if your polyester pants start to melt from the heat of the notebook, then you have a good point, but c'mon, it isn't even that hot, wuss. jk, haha!

That notebook looks nice though.

Price is prohibitive, to say the least

Yeah it is, but that is how it is with most new high end Notebooks.

I'm surprised that the hard drive is so small and slow...the notebook I got about 18 months ago has the exact same hard drive (same 40GB drive from IBM).

There's very little to be excited about with that notebook except for CPU speed. You could get virtually that same laptop 18 months ago, but with a 1ghz P3 processor and a M4 GPU....and it didn't require excessive cooling

Then it is not virtually the same notebook as 18 months ago. With a new CPU you need a new mainboard, also, it has a new GPU and sound. New chasis, new screen, new alot of stuff, this all makes for the case around the notebook to be changed also, needs more power, so that changes too, more ram and ports and accesories. The only thing that is the same I guess is your hard drive, but then again, you could always buy a new one. But don't worry, you're still cool.....

Same screen, ports and accessories...you're right on the kind of RAM and motherboard (I still wouldn't trade my BX board).

Its just hard to get excited about something that's evolutionary rather than revolutionary (anybody can up the processor speed, add more RAM, etc.).

And that neon green looks awful....looks like you're holding big box of snot

I've got a 15" UXGA screen, BTW Compaq's had those for their laptops for nearly 2 years now.

burned my laps, thats okay, but there are other heat sensitive devices which are located in the vicinity of my lap.

Nah the best laptops (as they were intended) not including once which have 32 mb vid cards which deplete the battery in 5 minutes are the sony vaio's or even the apples. (sleek)
