I'm on the market for a Turion 64 notebook! I've been looking at the Ferarri 4000 notebook and it does look sweet, but there is also some things I don't like about it:

The mouse looks funny (can always get something else - so not much of a problem)
The 100GB drive is 5400rpm (i'd rather have a 40GB 7200rpm than a 100GB 5400).
Can't buy JUST the notebook without the OS.

Does anyone have their own ideas of good notebooks? I'm not planning to play too many of the latest games on it except maybe EVE-Online and a few here and there.

Any suggestions? I'm hoping to run linux on it so I am forced to learn linux quicker /biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

I bought the Ferrari also, but now hitachi has a 7200 rpm HD 100 gig mobile drive. So I was thinking of upgrading it to that HD.
