Good evening, all...
I need to buy a new laptop / notebook computer with the following
specifications, in the following order of importance:
Screen 1600x1200 minimum
Computer can drive a separate 1600x1200 monitor and stretch its
desktop across both
Serial port, parallel port, VGA port, USB port(s), PS2 mouse/keyboard
port, and PCMCIA slot(s) all on the computer without needing a docking
station or port expander
Hard drive easily removeable, and must be a standard IDE notebook
drive (i.e. not SATA)
Battery easily removeable, and spare batteries available
CDRW built in (DVD+/-RW preferred but not necessary)
Decent battery life (is 3 hours on a charge a totally unreasonable
thing to ask?)
Windows XP Professional
Memory capacity 512 MB, expandable to at least 1 GB
CPU speed is not particularly important; anything over 1 GHz is
Size and weight are not important; anything that can reasonably be
called a "laptop" is probably OK
A couple of years ago I bought a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 that has
all of the above, but it has turned out to be a totally unreliable
piece of junk. I am finally giving up on it and looking for something
that's of reasonable quality, but I can't find anything that meets the
above specifications... not even from Toshiba (not that I'd ever buy
anything from them ever again...).
Any suggestions, anyone?
