Well I would like to know how fine are your internets connection in your countries since here in Spain connections suck and are expensive compared to others..

I pay 39 euros (50 dollars) for 1 poor mb. Which is what everyone has.
If you can afford you can have 8 mb but its way to expensive + half of the time the connection goes half the speed it should go :?

Salutes...

Here (USA) you can get 54mps for around $55, 54 considering you have a D-Link output or something... It really depends on your hardware here, because the ISP's here don't know how to control their connections to 8mps like they are suppose to be ^^

Go here http://webservices.cnet.com/bandwidth/ and see your actual speed. :shock: It will vary so take more than one reading.

I'd agree, HP are pretty good. My desktop is a HP and seems to be ok.

Stalengrad- If money is no object try a $2700 Sony Vaio. If you're normal with your money you cannot beat Dell Gateway or Compaq for value, durability and customer service.

If I get a transfer to Germany my mom is going to buy me this laptop:

I wouldn't get a Dell or any other major brand of labtops. Dell computers have a lot of software problems, and a lot of them can be very hard to get around.
