In the Market for a Notebook

10:20 pm PHT

I’m going to buy a notebook/laptop by the end of this month and I would like to solicit suggestions on what are the nice mobile computers out there. I’ve never owned a laptop before and so I don’t consider myself informed about the possible choices.

I really don’t need a top-of-the-line beast since this is going to be a strictly auxilliary PC for use during long vacations, business trips, and the like. Something in the 30,000 to 45,000 peso range would do. Some needed features:

  • Ethernet LAN

  • Wifi (802.11 b/g)

  • Bundled Windows XP Home (I’m still debating this)

  • 256+ MB RAM

  • 40+ GB hard drive

  • Modem

  • Combo optical drive

USB, Parallel, PS/2 ports, and the little things like that are a given. I don’t know much about which are the nice processors so I’ll leave it to you guys.

Some of the models that seem to fit the bill are:

So what models/brands would you recommend?  =)
