G-Stress Posted February 7, 2010 Share Posted February 7, 2010 I'm looking to get a new lap-top this week hopefully and thought I'd get a few suggestions. My main use for the laptop will mainly be VMWare. I currently have a Dell Lattitude D830 which is great, but I need something a lil better. I've been writing alot of video tutorials on the D830, but with only 2GB of ram there is quite a bit of lag trying to run win7, vista and leopard in vmware. (not all at the same time) I need something where I can run at least 1 instance of server 2k3 or 2k8, win7, vista and leopard at the same time. Hopefully this is feasible with an affordable laptop. I prefer Intel based, but will go with amd if need be. A recent episode of hak5 where Darren was at the Mubix layer he mentioned Mubix was running like 12 VM's during the episode on his laptop, curious to know what laptop he had. What I would like included: Wifi a/g/n Bluetooth Webcam 500 GB + HDD Looking on Best Buy's site I saw this: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olstemplatemap...sc=abcat0500000 However I'm a little hesitant about buying HP as I've bought 2 brand new over the years and both have had hardware failure after only a little over a year.
