    I see that tons of computer gurus are right in this forum. So I am tempted to ask a question because Christmas season is around the corner.

    My question is about to get a recommendation for a good laptop which can replace my desktop workhorse and also can be easily backed up by TI. My budget is around $2K. Any suggestion? TIA. Sarutaro

    Heya - well this is off-topic for the Acronis forum so I'm gonna move it to the appropriate Wilder's forum subsection. I also dare to venture the opinion that you will get even more responses from other qualified posters who do not frequent the Acronis section ;-)

    Sarutaro,

    I picked up a dell E1705 w/ MCE2005 on e-bay for 2K. Primarially a gaming rig, it's built for performance. I'm not a gamer but I prefer gaming machines for their power.

    hth,

    ...screamer

    btw: this was in April before intels new chip. You can probably get a better deal than I did, now.

    It might be a bit generic, but Whatever Toshiba has off the rack has always been rock solid for me since 386's ( now a typewriter ).

    One even survived a 2 metre fall onto concrete :eek: and still operates 3 years later.

    If you can find a good reseller there are some configuration changes that can be made to order.

    Some complications now with decisions re BLURAY v "the other one" drives.

    SPend a bit more if possible to future proof it as possible.
    If that is $US2k, you should be able to get a serious rocketship. :)
