I bought a Dell Latitude E6500 laptop about 9 months ago. It is a really great laptop. It has a 15.4 inch screen. The laptop may be a little heavy to carry around, but it fits my needs as a web site developer. I also love that virtual machines run great on it for my studies. The processor is Intel Centrino 2. It has an eSATA port that has a faster transfer rate than USB. My hard drive is 250GB. I currently have Windows XP installed, but if I ever wanted to, I could install Windows Vista on it. The power cord has a special feature where there is a blue light near the end adapter part that plugs into the computer. This helps you determine if the power cord is on and working. The keyboard is nice as well. There are three handy buttons that allows you to turn up the volume, turn down the volume, or mute the volume. You should buy the Dell Latitude E6500. I think you will be very satisfied.
