and Nvidia Quadro FX 570M (256MB) with a 15.4" 1920x1200 display.  Vista's built in experience benchmark places it at 4.8, the lowest score being the RAM.  Give this notebook a good look over at XYZ Computing.

The PC Club Enpower ENP660 is essentially an HP dv6500t, with different options available.  What does make it stand out is the full-size keyboard that includes a numpad.  On a 15.4" notebook, that is a rarity, but it also the only thing that really stands out on this notebook.  AnandTech spent a bit of time with this system, and you can see what they learned about it in their review.

This may seem a little blasphemous, but Tech ARP has questioned the usefulness of PDAs!  They tested a dedicated PDA against the old analog style personal organizer.  Paper versus digital meet in a battle for supremacy.  Before anyone points out that the paper organizer can't make phone calls it needs to be pointed out that the test is against a true PDA, not the multi-function PDA smart phones that have become available fairly recently.

At 8lbs, and enough high powered components to drain the battery in no time the Alienwaire Aurora m9700 notebook isn't terribly portable.  As a desktop replacement however, this notebook has more than enough power for any gamer in it's most expensive configuration.  The Tech Lounge couldn't resist picking one up to review, and you just know they didn't get the basic model.

XYZ has compiled a list of 9 notebooks, each of which they rate as a dream machine.  Some, like the Alienware, you will have a hard time getting your company to pay for, but others are very light and have extended battery power.

The ThinkPad series is billed as a rugged laptop that is able to survive whatever it might encounter in the day to day life of a mobile employee.  Tech ARP witnessed a demonstration of the technology that allows it to survive everything from liquid spills to drops, and tests of how well they work.  By the end of the demonstration, the laptop did end up a bit worse for wear, but fun was had by all.
