OK, a few things to say. A Dell that's only a few years old only has a 1.06 ghz processor?! I do realize of course that computers evolve so, so fast but that's a bit slow even for a few years.Quote:

And if you think you can't understand an HP rep then go talk to someone from Dell some time. I think I said this earlier in this thread and in other threads that I have an HP Pavilion DV2000Z (Z meaning an AMD Sempron processor) and I love it more than any computer in the world.
My sister had an IBM ThinkPad (Yes, from the IBM days) since October 2003. She had been using it for college. Then she finished college and the computer just sat in her room for a few years while my sister was living in Boston. And in those few years it had experienced extreme cold, extreme warmth (you've never been in the upstairs of my house in the summer... it's dreadful):( and has been moved around in that time. And as of April 24, 2007, it is eight years old and still going. It has needed a new battery; when IBM had the ThinkPads their batteries really stunk. However, with the new generic battery that I got for it, the eight year old ThinkPad gets only about fifteen less minutes than my three month old Pavilion...:o But anyway yes ThinkPads are the best laptop you can buy. I would have gotten one besides the Pavilion but they're pretty expensive. When I'm in college maybe I'll get a ThinkPad because of mobility issues but I'm sure that my Pavilion will still be fine for use at home.
