Yes and no.

Its not very powerful but should make up for this with battery life and weight,You dont mention how much ram it has or what optical drive.

40gb for me would not nearly be enough but everyone has different needs,The video chipset is no better then the non-nivida intergrated chipsets,so adds no value.

And while that screen res seems all nice and dandy good like running Windows at that setting,everything will be tiny,and if you lower the res things will get blocky....

Does it suit your purposes?,budget?,quite happy ringing a help line to Malaysia and speaking to someone for whom english is a second language when you find you cant connect to the internet?.....

A Pentium M 1.60 GHz is a fairly fast CPU. It easily keeps up to speed with a standard P4 2.4 GHz, and features twice the cache, 2Mb as opposed to 1Mb.

I have a similarly spec laptop with a 1400x1050 display. Downsizing to lower resolutions such as 1024x768 cause very little if any "blockyness"

At the standard res of 1400x1050, things do get a bit small, but everything is so sharp and crisp it really is very easy to read.

Here's a few screenshots to compare 1400x1050 Vs 1024x768

Thats advertising, can do that, but I dont tell fairy stories, and I don't send spam.

Your add isnt available in your profile even a temp one for a while There will be something's at the beginning of next week.

They wont last when they hit the street.

Sherilee,

No, I talking to you.

Sheryl Lee Sharado, or what ever surname, in that demansing, raised southern female tone. Is what the name thing was about. The tramp thing was new for me.

The rest was/is for you.

They are all ex demo, around 50 units.

Metla,

I dont think so, they started them too high, they are only 1.5's.

If they were going to fly out, there would have been serious movement buy now, over 30 still have no bid's, but you may just have changed that.

What would be a similar off the shelf laptop purchased in NZ

Metla,

People who re-sellit to victims on Scamme for a 3% net margin.

If they are lucky.

Or people who might have brought from you, if you hadent told them it was there.

Its advertising but its in a legit conversation so,?

Sherilee,

They are in NZL.

The advertised warranty is plus $297-00 AU for next day onsite. I think you can buy a cheaper RTB warranty if you want, they were just over $2100-00 Before they came off the shelf I believe.

But the onsite warranty was still an "Extra".

If you'r going to bid on one dont forget to add the 13.5% premium to your bid price, plus freight.

IE if you bid 1200-00 it will cost you 1382-00 on the table. in wellington.
