well, i'm going insane because i can't find a good mac laptop for under $500 thats fast, efficient, and strong enough to handle what i do to it, so i'm one one of my rampages of looking for a laptop that will handle tiger x86 that's available online. i had a page with a list of computers at one point, but i have since deleted the bookmark. anyone know where that list would be? i know different computers have different components that work, so i'll start out by saying that sound, video, and wireless must work flawlessly. it needs to be something that i could easily add more ram or a faster hard drive to. i've also been leaning toward ibm because of what i've heard about the thinkpads, but i forgot how much was supported on them (and the lack of a trackpad on cheaper models drives me crazy).
