GiorgioG - Tell us about your new latop

GiorgioG,
Can you tell us about your new Presario X1000 laptop? May be a short review from a developer view point?
I am seriously thinking about getting one of those. Thanks.

Thats perfectly understandable. It's not like you will be able to bill me for your review :)

Does anyone have any specific questions?  I did a quick & dirty write-up, took a few pictures, compared it to my work provided Inspiron 1100.  Nothing extensive.  I'll post it shortly.

I just wanted to know how does it perform as a sole development machine. Is it good enough to run web server, application server, database server etc.?
Thanks for taking time to do this GiorgioG.
I never beleive those CNET/ZDNET reviews.

Just about any laptop can suffice for development. The key factor isn't CPU speed, but amount of RAM and speed of disk. My laptop is a P3M-1GHz, but with 1GB of RAM and a 5400 RPM disk, it's very usable for development.

Just a word of warning, the site/server is brand new and rough around the edges.  I'm interested in seeing what this dedicated server can do, so bombs away:

adding to what Brad says, the bus speed is also pretty important...

G,

nice review - if I was working at CNET, I would hire you in a sec:-)
