    Good or bad?

    I'm looking to get a lappy in a few months and already I'm window shopping, LOL. I reckon in a few months we'll be talking 3400+ish.

    Anyway I wanna spend a grand in the end (accessories included.) So looking NOW, is that lappy a goodun? I want one that has room for an XP/Linux dual boot and can compile source code nicely. My only gripe with that lappy is that I'd have to buy a WiFi adapter for it - but I reckon by the time I get one there's be a similar model available at that price with one built in.

    Opinions?

    Cheers,
    Kez.

    That's a bargain and a half, that! And it even has half-decent graphics

    WiFi adaptors aren't expensive anyway.
