Hi, I am looking for some advice on notebooks. I am looking at get a new fast notebook. I just can't decide what to get. That where you come in.
I am going to be using it for web development, programing in php using ZEND (uses a lot of ram), running MySQL and Apache for development. I will also be using photoshop. I wanted to get a 16" or 15" screen a 60G 5400rpm hard drive and 64 or 128mb video card and 1G of ram. This will be my main computer at work. Most of the time I will be just at my desk with the machine plug in. I also have to do all the tech installs and networking so I do have to travel a bit with it. The CPU is what I am trying to pick now.
I am just wondering what is better to get and overall faster.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what notebook I should by? I own a Dell Inspirion 8000 and I have to admit I HATE dell. I have had everything replaced in my machine except the case. Motherboard, cpu, ram twice, HD. I hate the support people I dealt with too. I am sure I just got a lemon but they where not very helpful and didn't offer me any compensation for selling me a piece of crap. Sorry about that I am still bitter.
Does anyone have any link to any good computer stores where to buy a notebook from. I would prefer a canadian store (live in Canada) or someone who will ship internationally. But if not that is ok I have friends that live in the US, I could go get if I had to.
I have checked out directpc.ca they have some good high end machines the prices seem pretty good to. They say the notebooks are EUROCOM, I went to their site worst prices EVER. I think they are just SAGER notebooks which seem pretty good. Has anyone ever used a ECS G732E Notebook? They seem to be a pretty good deal. They are a barebones notebook. I have seen some places online and ebay stores selling them complete.
Thanks for any advice you can give.
