Hi all, I would just like some expert advice on which laptop i should buy. I want an ultra portable laptop i can run mandrake on and take to lectures as im a student. I have been searching for a couple of days and have found 2 laptops i like. They are both £199.99 + £20 P&P (absolute limit) One is a Dell D400 the other a IBM x31 I understand the x31 has amazing build quality but the dell is not far off I understand the x31 is smaller and lighter which is what im looking for I understand the x31 has a much longer battery life than the D400 The specs of each are as follows; D400 Centrino 1.6ghz 1gb RAM 60GB HDD Shared GFX (intel) Comes with free bag X31 Centrino 1.4ghz 256mb RAM 40GB HDD ATI Mobility 16mb Comes with free port replicator & bag The difference in processor speed, ram and hard drive space is quite significant but is it significant enough to confidently choose the d400 over the x31? I want the x31 if im honest but the spec of the D400 is too good to ignore. Second opinions please!
