My desktop is a little dated and I am thinking of buying a new laptop. I probably won't replace it for a few years atleast so I would like to get one that would be good for a while. Here is what I have been looking at.

Dell Studio 15
Intel Core 2 Duo P8400(2.20GHz/1066Mhz FSB/3MB cache)

4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 800 MHz

320GB SATA Hard Drive

256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3450

That's the jest of it. Let me know if there is anything else I should be looking at or should change. I didn't get more memory b/c I am figuring on getting an external drive to keep at the house. Let me know what you guys think.

always been an HP fan myself, but for a Dell that doesnt look like to bad of a setup for a laptop. prolly wont do a lot of the high end gaming but thats not what laptops were intended for in the first place. :D

Yea, I figured I wouldn't do a lot of gaming on it. I would love to have a gaming comp, but can't afford it. I will mainly just be surfing and playing a few games.
