Re: IBM Thinkpad or a Toshiba? Dell

I have a Dell Inspiron 3000.  Everything except sound works great.

My apm scheme is optimal.  I suspend and resume many times a day, and my
uptime is 5 days.  I left it suspended for the entire weekend without recharging
and had no problems. 

I highly recommend Dells for desktop replacements.  For lightweight,
the IBM and Sony offerings are really nice as well.

If any one knows how to get crystal audio working I would love to 
hear about it.
