Base price was $1000 NZ, but by the time everything else was loaded onto it, it was around $2000 NZ. I think that's about $1400 US.

It's also Vista capable, so when Microsoft fixes all the crappy flaws in it, I may consider upgrading.

Windows for gaming
Linux for doing things fast
OSX for work-related things -- I am not rich enough to buy a Mac at $1500, so I'm going to hack it in there.

3 GHz processor could mean all sorts of things depending on whether that's a pentium 3 or a Xeon (8 core)

Pretty good for a laptop, no?

Is the nVIDIA a much better graphics card? Doesn't matter to me... I'm not a computer gamer.

Did the P3 line even have a 3 GHz processor? I thought the top end of them was like 1.5. I'm running a single core, P4. It does everything I ever need it to do, runs great. I don't need anymore power (not saying I don't want more power).

Yes. That's where your 40k a year is going, unfortunately.

Yup, nice processor. I'm surprised you can live with just 2 gigs on Vista, though. I have 4 gigs and sometimes I get memory warnings when playing the sims (3)...

Got Ubuntu on it? ssmile.gif

Oh, probably not. Single core P4—I don't think I can live with single cores anymore. It's much better to have dual cores. Now you can avoid some of the random hangs that happen when you got a program that basically hogs a core.

I've never gotten any memory warnings and haven't experienced any major freezing issues or anything of the sort -- perhaps because I just don't use it for gaming. I've played simcity 3000 on it a few times with no issues... it's even fast enough that if I hit the windows key I can switch back over to the essay I'm supposed to be doing with no delay.

No Ubuntu for me. I used to have a dual-boot set up from within windows but I ended up having an issue booting and having to do a complete windows system restore. No more for me. I just don't have the experience.
