I'm looking for a windows laptop that has a DVI-D out and a dedicated ATi or NVidia graphics card that can push 1920x1280 to an external monitor. I'm looking to purchase within 1 month.
Ideally I want an ultraportable, but really I need one as powerful as a desktop replacement as it will be my main box, so the smaller the better. I'm looking for an Core 2 Duo or Athlon 64 X2. RAM and HD sizes arenít important as long as I can upgrade. DVI can be either built in or through a dock, as long as its digital.
I'm not stuck on any brand, as long as they are well built and drivers are easily available. Honestly, the 15" MacBook Pro seems to fit the bill, but I will be running Windows on it all the time so I'm not sure I want to go that route. Other than that all I've found was the Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705. Asus also has some decent looking options, but thier website is painfully slow. Anyone have any other recommendations?
