New Laptop Search

Since my laptop screen cracked months ago I’ve been waiting for Windows 7 to come out so I could get a new laptop, this will very likely be the laptop I take cruising as my personal machine. I’ll probably have a dedicated machine at the nav station. Here’s what I’m looking for feature-wise and some quick searching I did. If you have any suggestion lets me know…
