I'm still somewhat of a newbie to computers and stuff, and I don't want to be screwed over when I buy a laptop heres a list of what i want. What else should i be looking out for? I got a research grant for $1500 for this laptop and I am willing to throw in an other $1000 for a total of $2500 max. Also where should i buy this thing?

Heres what i want
500+ram upgradeable to 1000+
PentiumIII 1.oGHz+
30GB+
dvd/cd-rw

dunno what you'll be using it fer but, (things to consider) type of display(will you be needing fast display updates,like for tm) battery life(both overall and time betweeen recharge) I've heard that xp pro has better pwr management than home.and of course ergonomics, remember you'll proly be stuck using it for some time sooo...look for something you can live with in terms of keyboard etc etc
