My friend's old P2 lappy died, so now he wants a new one. Sub $1000. He prefers amd, but if you can get a Pentium M for that price he will get it. He doesnt game much, but if you see a lappy that has an XP in it but a nice video card, show it plz. Anything sub $1000 and new goes!

Check the dell deals at Fatwallet. The problem with most of those cheapos is that they are heavy and hot. If that's not a problem for you, then go for it. I got one a while back and sold it on. There was a dell around $1000 that was a 5 lb centrino. That would be the way to go IMHO.
