Hello! I am looking for a laptop and after 3 months of sifting through piles of info/opinions and weighing all the possibilities I've narrowed my choice down to 4 and am now stuck. The choices are (not in any particular order): 1. HP Paviliion ze2242EA (AMD Turion 64 ML-28 at 4.6 GHz, 512 Mo and 80 Go) 2. Dell Inspiron 6000 (Pentium M 730 1.60 Ghz 2Mo cache FSB 533MHz, 512 Mo, 60Go IDE with 7 200 rpm) 3. Various Acer TravelMates (Pentium M 725 4.6Ghz and similar specs) OR various Acer Aspire (AMD Athlon 64 3700+ and similar specs) 4. Acer Aspire 1692WLMi (Processeur : Intel Pentium M 740 à 1,7 GHz with Centrino, 1 Go RAM, harddrive : 80 Go) First three choices are the same price, but the 4th choice is about $125 more expensive (may be worth it because of the added memory/disk space). What I am most confused about is the processor. Which one of these computers has the best processor? I would prefer not changing computers for another 4 yrs. Battery life is also very important - needs to be as long as possible and I know that the processor is related to this. And reliability... I live in a country where "customer service" is really a joke (i.e. France). Weight would also be a deciding factor - all else being equal. Any ideas?
