Hello everyone! I would like you to help me find my notebook.

I've been searching for some notebooks but I cannot find the best one.

I like Toshiba M45-S331 as of the moment, but it has a shared video memory. The version of this one with a dedicated video memory is the Canadian version. But I think there are no way a store may ship the notebook from Canada to the US.

Any other brands in the US market with this kind of laptop.

Some of my requirements are.
1. Pentium M - Centrino Technology
2. 256MB RAM or more
3. 60GB Hdisk or more
4. Must be lower than 7.5lbs.
5. TruBrite technology or the same (monitor)
6. Firewire

Options are:
1. Tv Tuner
2. Card reader

Anyway, that's it. I hope you can help me find one.

Thanks in advance.

Some current notebooks meeting those specs, and having a comparable size screen (15.4" widescreen) to the Satellite you're looking at:

Alienware Area-51m 5500 Extreme
Dell Inspiron 6000 Dedicated Graphics
Fujitsu LifeBook N3500
Gateway M460XL
HP Compaq Business Notebook nx7010
Sony Vaio VGN-FS500

Try looking at an IBM T42p.  I have it, and I am very satisfied with it.

I have a question regarding IBM notebooks...my friend has one and sometimes the problem with the notebook is that it runs really slow...why is that so? Is that because of the pre-installed programs of IBM?

I like Fujitsu notebooks but the problem is that I will a buy one in the United States, I love notebooks here in Japan but the problem is that they are really, really expensive and I don't want to re-format them just to install an English OS. I read somewhere that Fujitsu made in the USA is not as good as the ones built here in Japan. =(

I have seen many good feedbacks regarding Dell and IBM notebooks. So if you have to choose between Dell or IBM? Which will you choose?

I also like Sony VAIO. c",)

Wah! Really, I am now confused. *winks*

Of the choices I listed, I'd suggest getting the Inspiron, which has as an option a 3 year warranty with onsite service and accidental damage protection for $1524 (through March 30.)
