thats not how it works, the way futureshop does it is like this, if you had the best compaq, you will get the new best compaq if it was crap you will just get crap that is newer, you have no choice sorry dude

The compaq presario 700 is junk... the evo line isn't bad, however.

Ive owned several Gateway laptops and and IBM Thinkpad..none of which were my "choice" (school or work,handed down etc..)Heres my thoughts.
IBM: Decent Machine,Heavy!,Good battery,Built in wireless is nice,The red dot mouse thing is in my opinion FAR better than the touchpad mice, but neither is a good substitute for a real mouse.
GATEWAY: Very light, screen after a while gets floppy,rugged, but the support sucks.
For 1600 bucks id go Vaio all the way or mayby a nice (used?) Voodoo machine.

get a cheap refurbished/remanufactured system is what I recommend. You save a bunch and the machine is outdated only a few months sooner.

ECS ECS ECS ECS ECS ECS

You can get a 2.4ghz laptop with a 16" screen, mobility Radeon 9000 with 64 megs non-shared mem, 30-40gig HD, 512 megs ram for around $1500.

http://www.ecs.com.tw/products/a928.htm is what I got just two weeks ago, not quite as heroic, but only $1000 for 2gig/512meg/15"/40gig, I love it like hell.

Look on www.pricewatch.com , I saw a really cheap supplier there but can't remember the name. Maybe I'll dig up the link later.

Yes, it is heavy, but it is designed to be a desktop replacement, not something you carry around every day from home to class..
