I'm looking for a laptop. The software is not important at all. The highest price I would buy it for is $1200. I've been looking at dells since very often some good deals have been posted in gotapex.com. It will be used for software development, word processing (including LaTex). Also for watching dvds, playing games and music on the road. Not a must but maybe it shoud run Linux too (altough I don't think that'll be a problem, I always find a solution for that) What do you guys recommend?
