Getting a laptop for my main (and ONLY) computer
I currently have a desktop and Dell D600 laptop. I also have a Dell Axim x3i PDA and I feel like I have too many things so I'm deciding on selling both laptop and desktop computers and getting a good laptop to replace both as a portable and desk PC. I want to keep my PDA for portable MP3 player and such since I have a 1GB SD card.
Here's my current setup on my desktop.
AMD Barton XP 2500+ (overclocked to a stable 3200+ at 400mhz FSB)
Shuttle AN35-Ultra nForce2 Motherboard
80gb Samsung 7200RPM 2MB Cache HD
Made by ATi Radeon 9800PRO 128MB
512mb PC3200 and 256mb PC2100 RAM. Not sure of the brand. Cheap though. :)
3.5 inch 12-in-1 flash card reader plus 1 USB 2.0
4 extra USB 2.0 through PCI slots
Memorex Double Layer 16x DVD +/-RW
Maybe add my 17" Polyview LCD if I get a laptop with a big screen.
The D600 specs are as follows:
Pentium M 1.4ghz
512mb DDR PC2700?
40GB 5200RPM drive (white label)
14.1 SXGA LCD
So, how much do you guys reckon I could sell these two computers for and what laptop (used, new, refurbished) I could buy with the estimated amount of money? Also, I would like this to be a sub-par gaming machine, as well. Maybe, it can have a graphics card close to the performance of the 9800PRO. I'm not looking for something ultra-portable or anything like that. I mostly would have it as a desktop computer and take it on a trip when needed.
I've looked on eBay and I'm considering the Dell Inspiron 6000D with the Radeon x300 card. Anyone else object with this?
edit: Don't mind my signature specs. I haven't updated it since a year ago. :)
