You know what would be an awesome New Year's Resolution? Getting a new laptop. You know where you could get one? Woot. You waiting for something clever or witty about this intro? Not coming, I'm loaded on eggnog and totally phoning it in. As an apology, here are many great deals on laptops, and also some speakers.

In case you didn't get one for the holidays - computers galore! What do you have your eye on?

I'm just hanging out, really.

I wonder if those HD/6 speakers are designed to look retro, or if they're just old stock? Looks like something to plug into the Soundblaster in your 486 before you fire up Doom.

The 17" HP is not for gaming, the FirePro video card will not handle things well if you plan on going that route.

I need a new laptop. I use it mainly for work applications (like ms office), database work, web design, email, web surfing, pictures, facebook, etc. - but I don't need it for gaming. (OK, I do dabble in a few FB games, but that's not really gaming is it?) I don't want a screen smaller than 17" as I'm on it at least 8 hours a day. The HP EliteBook 8760w XU089UTR Notebook, 17.3” looks interesting but I can't find any reviews on it. Anyone have any comments on it? Thanks!

PS - Speed is important. When I hit a button I want immediate results. I'm so impatient. When working I have several applications open at once working or transferring data between them. Having at least 6-10 tabs open at once is pretty normal.

Anyone know how to find out what kind of warranty is included with the 17.3" HP Elitebook?

Previous discussion for the Dell XPS on Woot.
I play some RPGs and FPS on the road, and this looked good enough for the price. Also, Windows 7 and not the Windows ME of this cycle.
I was comparing to this lenovo on newegg with similar specs and price, but wanted the GeForce 550 of the Dell instead of the GeForce 635.

Something higher than 1366x768 for LCDs larger than 9 inches?

You mentioned you wondered if there was an "Orange" computer to compare to Apple. In fact there used to be an Orange computer that was a clone of the Apple II:

My guess is old stock. They have ones just like em and have for a long time (for basically the same price) in the Koss Outlet Store attached to the factory in Milwaukee. Love their headphones, but never bit the bullet on a pair of computer speakers.
