I own a Thinkpad T42P and dont like it. Im thinking Dell. What is the price-is-no-object laptop best suited to multitabling poker?

this (http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&oc=iXPS2S1&s=dhs)?

If I would want a dell for multitable and money is no object, I would pick that one. It is also customizable while you are at it. Upgrading to 1gb ram and 100gb disk is not a bad thing. Not needed but fun /images/graemlins/smile.gif

What is it about your current laptop that you dislike? I used to multitable on my laptop that had a touchpad and it was just too much of a pain. I don't think a nipple would be much better so if i had to do it again i'd get one of those micro optical mouses. If screen size is your issue just get whatever has a big enough res with no overlap. FWIW i've only heard good things about the dependability and good construction of IBM's laptops.

I have had to send my T42P back to the depot 3 times in 7 months for a blown USB controller board, a blown Bluetooth board, and a loose LCD connection causing the screen to flicker when moved.

Additionally, I have a periodic bug that causes the system to freeze up (Alt-Ctrl-Del doesnt work, must hold down power button to turn off or sometimes, remove the battery). I cannot isolate whether this is a software or a hardware problem, so I can't send it back for repairs.

Finally, I made the error of getting the 14" screen, which is great for portability, but lousy for avoiding overlap.

Its their top of the line "Inspiron XPS Gen 2". Go to notebooks then build you own, and then pick the one to the left.

Sony A-Series with warranty. If I had money to waste I would get this piece of crap and insure it against breaking (because they always do). Otherwise, it's Dell.
