My son John is going to start his own Blog. The address is going to be navygeek.blogspot.com. He said that he has about 30 post ready to put up as soon as he gets a chance. He still has to buy a Laptop computer and really wanted a Dell but after going to their site and building several laptops to his specifications, all the ship dates are a month away. If anyone has a good suggestion for a laptop with the following minimum specifications let me know.
* $1700.00 max Price, that's with tax and shipping.
* 160 gig 7200rpm hard drive ( he would go down to a 5400rpm if needed )
* 256meg dedicated graphics card
* 2 megs system memory
* Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 (2MB cache/1.8GHz/800Mhz FSB)
* Windows Vista Ultimate
* Wireless 802.11a/g/Draft n
* CD/DVD burner
* Built In microphone and Speakers
* A reasonable build and shipping time. ( 1-2 Weeks at the most )
I found several at HP well within the specifications and price that he wants but I would love to hear what other people have to say. He wants to use it for school and some gaming. This will be his only computer and he will be using it all over the world. John was majoring in Computer Science in College before joining the Navy.
