My dad wants to buy a medium to high-end laptop and wants to spend no more than than $1500. He wants a machine with Win XP Pro, MS Office (Word & Excel), port replicator (docking station), 3-4 year warranty, Pentium M 1.8 GHz (min), CR-RW / DVD ROM, and a good sized screen. And he wants it from a well-known company, like Dell or HP. He admits he may have unreasonable desires, but this is the goal. This sort of machine seems to be around $2000; I checked the HTF deals page but they didn't help much. So is there any hope? Do you know of any remarkable deals, corporate discounts, small-business discounts, or other ways to get the machine he wants for such a low price? Or, any advice on how to convince him he's completely unrealistic? Thanks!
