"Take a look at what your 10 dollar donation puts you
in the pot for:
"Alienware m5500i-R3 Series. Dual core 2 gig chips with a gig of
ram and 100 gigs of hard drive space. Radeon Mobility X1400
graphics brings you into the game. DVI output is present with a dvd
burner and card reader. System is currently SuperOS with all the
bells and whistles ringing and blowing. Runs great under full
compiz effects...I've used this laptop for making first impressions
with new users and it is a powerful tool. Not to mention that it
performs beautifully. You can see a full slideshow here. An extra
five dollars insures we ship a 1 gig stick of ram for you to
upgrade it with.
"Acer TravelMate 5720: Problems aside from getting the
TrustedCore shredded into non-existence, this is a fantastic
laptop. That bully will not bother you any more on this machine.
Also I've now heard two stories of people falling with their 5720's
and having the computer breaking their falls...and then firing
right up. I can believe it. Sporting a built-in WORKING webcam, it
delivers your smiling face via the HD Radeon Mobility 2400 XT
