I also recommend HP, I have a HP Pavilion DV6174ea, got it in January it is very fast and has a Core 2 Duo processor (its only the 5500 1.66ghz but its fast as hell). The newer models have the Santa Rosa platform which is supposed to increase battery life and has a better wireless adaptor and such.

New PC Specs: Intel Core 2 Qaud Q9950 1.83GHZ (Overclocked to 3GHZ), 4GB RAM PC-6400, Samsung F1 1000GB Hard Drive, Asus P5Q Pro Motherboard, Antec Freezer 7 Pro, Antec Three Hundred PC Case, Lite-ON DVD RW. Laptop Specs: Model HP Pavilion DV6174ea, Intel Core 2 Duo 5500 (1.66ghz), 2gb ram, Nvidia Geforce 7400 Go 256mb (128 dedicated, 128 turbocache), Wifi, DVD RW with lightscribe technology, and has a remote control as well!

Yes, I have that Santa Rosa platform. I called up Dell to get some info out of what Im' getting. Can't wait to use it....if it gets here.

Intel's next-generation laptop will have an integrated 3G chip from Nokia and improved graphics support for Microsoft's Windows Vista, the company announced on Wednesday.

Nokia's HSDPA technology will appear on motherboards bearing Intel's Santa Rosa package, Dadi Perlmutter, general manager in Intel's mobility group, said at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco.

Laptop makers have been experimenting with integrated chips that can connect to cellular data networks, and with these plans, Intel will make Nokia's technology part of its Centrino package of chips.

Santa Rosa is the code-name for the next iteration of Centrino, which blends a processor, chipset and wireless networking technology. Intel's Core 2 Duo processor, already on the market, will be joined to a new chipset called Crestline that comes with support for the company's Active Management Technology (AMT) and improved graphics performance. AMT is a nod to Intel's business customers with support for PC management technologies. The company will also move its networking chips to the faster 802.11n wireless standard.

Santa Rosa is scheduled to arrive in the first half of 2007, Perlmutter said. Around that time, Intel also plans to deliver a new chip based on a different architecture from the Core 2 Duo for ultra-mobile PCs, he said. This chip will consume half as much power as Intel's current mobile designs but at one-fourth the size.

Before that chip arrives, Intel will work on Santa Rosa's power consumption, using two technologies involving its front-side bus architecture and its power management controls. The company is increasing the speed of the front-side bus, which connects the processor to the memory, to 800MHz. That bus can also now dynamically scale down its operating speed, as required by the operating workload.

Also, Intel can now put its processor into a deeper sleep state, because the Crestline chipset is intelligent enough to recognise whether data is stored on the processor's on-chip cache memory or in memory. This means the chipset doesn't have to wake up the processor to check the on-chip cache memory, and waste energy.

That's actually an older article from last year , but concept still sticks.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
