Check out my new Lappy! –
Wow I love my laptop, I got it late June, and I couldn't be happier. The Athlon 64 processor really is an amazing piece of work, and coupled with 1 GB of RAM, it flies! The only downside is the weaker video card, you couldn't get the 128 MB DDR video option....but oh well, I'm not a big PC gamer, definately a PS2 gamer and PC surfer and app user.
The sound also is AMAZING on these speakers, I mean seriously, I have never heard sound so good out of laptop speakers! I can put it in my car and listen to it like I would my car stereo! I think that is because of the front mounted Harmon-Kardon speakers, allows for bigger ones.
I also love this wireless G internet that is now all over my house. Now I can unplug and just sit around the house and surf. Also, this AMD Athlon 64 runs at a very low clock speed, so the battery life is close to that of a weaker powered Centrino, with up to 3-3.5 hrs of battery! All of this for only about 1300 dollars, pretty good value compared to a similar Dell Intel alternative.
If you wanna know some of the specs, you can look below at my signature, or check the following URL, I direct customized it from HPShopping.com using my educational college discount, I recommend their service to ANYONE looking at buying a laptop, as their prices and quality on mid to hi-level laptops are unparalleled, leaves Dell and Gateway's Intel-only options in the dust!:

Click on HP Pavilion Notebooks
Click on new zv5000z series
Remember I got an educational discount, as well as added a 512 MB DDR Kingston RAM module myself, so the price may be 100 or so higher than what I paid, but still much better deal than most comparables!
Enjoy! Also, if you want to look at another amazing Athlon 64 laptop in a much higher price range (2000 dollars). Look at this one. Pretty much like mine except with a bigger HDD, and a 128 MB Radeon video card. And it doesn't hurt that it has Ferrari styling.
