Hi All,

I have a question about laptops and was wanting some advice.

I do work from home, requiring MS Office applications, Adobe Acrobat,
and graphics, sometimes HTML as well.

My current laptop is slowing going the way of old laptops.

I do not WANT Vista... And know I want a DELL.


Does anyone know the difference between a Vostro and Latitude?

Would you think that the default graphics card provided with Dell
laptops is good enough for my needs, or do I need an upgrade?

Does a 720 rpm hard drive make that much of a difference.

Maybe this is offtopic, but maybe not, since we all of us who work from
home need to buy our own supplies.

I have until June 16 to be able to buy a Dell with Windows XP (Home
Edition) (a system admin said not much diff between XP home vs XP

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice
