    Hi,
    I'm in the market for a new laptop, I do a lot of scientific programming / graphics, and also want it to function in an audio rig, using fairly sophisticated software like ProTools. I'm considering Dell Inspiron 5150, 8600, or Gateway 675 Series. I don't care about games or dvds, or portability. I'm leaning towards 5150 because of slightly higher performance (?), any thoughts? Any other models I should take a good look at (thinkpad, etc)...
    Thanks,
    Paul

    5150 better performer than the 8600? No, you can't put a Pentium M chip in the 5150, the 8600 supports up to a 1.7 GHz chip I believe. The 5150 will only allow a Pentium 4 Configuration.

    If you want the fastest Notebook on the market, the Voodoo Envy M:855 smokes all others, it uses the Athlon Mobile 64 processor

    pricey though!
