I'm looking for a notebook primarily for large database applications: Excel, Access, etc. I don't need multimedia or graphics -- just speed and storage. A wide screen would be nice too, for seeing large tables. And, I won't be doing much travel, so portability and weight are not an issue. It will be connected to a cable modem through a wireless broadband router. Speed, storage, security a must.

Use an external Firewire based 3.5 inch 7200 rpm drive, or better yet, an external SCSI based drive w/ a good PC Card adapter. These drives will be much faster than the fastest drives that can be built into your laptop.

While proc speed will be important, for heavy database applications, you could trade off proc speed for investments in a SCSI drive and see significantly better performance.
