Yeah, it's unbelievable what kind of processing power you can pick up in a laptop for a decent price if you're not overly concerned about gaming performance.

I'd have a hard time putting together a C2D desktop system with a legal OS and a CRT monitor for that kind of change!!!! :)

That's the reason why I suggest to most of my clients a laptop: it can suit their needs way more than any desktop could, for the same budget. Gaming is not an option though.

Everything I wanted including the X3100 (that's intel's newer vid isn't it???), 200G HD, 2Gig mem, and a t5450.

Advertised at $699, but they had an open box for $659 so we ended up getting an HP multifunction printer to bring the total to $722 (before taxes) after paying the laptop and printer "environmental" fee.
No argument from me Toshiba makes a good machine. x3100 is the newer intel gfx and although it is not great for gaming it will certainly let you play HL2 and some other older titles at low settings. Nice price congrats.
