  1. Is there one available online or something? Like a commercially available product, becaues I doubt I will get a broken mac at a good price.
  2. Whichever is cheaper. Difference doesn't exist if you're using a 32 bit system(unless you count power savings).
  3. How much would that cost? Could you point me toward a good laptop chassis?
  4. I think I can firmly assure you that if you are going to be using headsets or really anything less than a $500 set of surround sound speakers, you will not need a discrete sound card. If your onboard is broken or from nineteen-ninety-late, I would probably recommend the X-Fi Audigy.
  5. Compxpert, your Gateway would be great, except its battery lasts about 5 hours less than I would like. I don't think that there will be many Core 2 Duo's that have 17" screens and can get 8 hours of battery life out of anything but a Plane battery. That is why I wanted the Atom. I would certainly prefer a C2D, but that is not realistic. And 8 hours battery life and 17 inch screens are my first priority. No 13.3" will do it for me. nor will a 15.4" or anything like that. I'm OK with a laptop that weighs ~20lbs If it can meet the requirements. Really.
  6. Ok, well thanks for informing me that such a laptop does not exist yet. However, I shall remain hopeful.
  7. Must have: 17" Screen. Intel Atom CPU. 8 hours battery life Negotiable: Under 12 lbs Does not look awkward DVD drive Does not burn my lap Costs under $1000 Stays cool. Don't care: Hard drive RAM OS It must have a few of the negotiable things. At least 2 I would say. Ideally the fifth and third. The rest I can live with.
  8. Sometimes. I have seen people tell others to do it. That's not very nice lol. But I learned about it, and I kinda use it rather than moving my hand to the mouse...
  9. Umm... Best within reason would be a i7 920, SLI 295's, 6GB RAM 1600Mhz, blu-ray drive and wc cooling setup. The gfx cards will run you about 1000 themselves, and the rest of the stuff would be another thousand or so. especially considering you would need a 1000W PSU to clock those where you would like them. 295's are 289W each, i7 can get to 210W with D0 stepping running prime at 4.5Ghz with however much voltage you need to get there, and using a barely there PSU generally ends up being trouble anyway.
  10. "Nobody will ever need more than 640k RAM!" -- Bill Gates Hmm... Coincidence? Anyway, to OP, i7 is a good idea, LGA 1366 is not being discontinued, Gulftown is coming on the same socket(1366). Vista is a skip. Win 7>Xp>Vista.
  11. Are you gaming? If you are, with the exception of FSX, you will see FAR better performance with a dual-core chip which you clock super high and spending money saved on the CPU on the GPU. i7/295 is the best of the best. E8500/GTX 260 is a perfectly reasonable alternative. But if you do get a PII 940, you should probably get an ATI card, considering it is the same company,
  12. Jeffro, You have a D0 chip. So your stats will be different from the guy above's probably. Your CPU and QPI voltage will be closer to 1.28 for 3.6 Ghz operating continuous use. 1.35 Volts would make sense on your chip for 4.1Ghz+ based on my experiences with D0's. And your temps show that you have a stock cooler. Which means you should get an aftermarket cooler if you want to OC without "bricking" your chip. Especially with a D0 i7 which you could easily get past 4 Ghz.
  13. Yah, P6T is 1366. P5Q is roughly the 775 equivalent.
