lots of RAM, HDD and a good CPU (same as anything really)....... video out if your using a fullscreen prog, goodish graphix card.... DVD player is cool too.... oh and remember to get as many USB and firewire ports as you can, nice big active matrix screen.....

the graphics cards i see in laptop systems are 8mb or 16mb.. is it different to pc cards- being 64 -128mb+? if its no different surely they would sux0? Can you get beefy graphics cards for laptop?
I was wandering about dual screen with laptop. My application is to bring the laptop home to my workstation, where there is a monitor. Can I use it as an independant monitor? (as in-not a clone)
Laptops dont have pci slots? so how do you get a firewire/usb slot?
What do YOU use USB for? have you used usb2 yet? or firewire2?

hmmmm I think you can get ones with like geforce cards and that.
yes all laptops that have 98 and higher can have the VGA out set as a second desktop (not clone)
I have 2usb on board and a PCMCIA 2port firewire card

As far as laptops go, i would reccomend a top of the line dell inspirion 8100 or a top toshiba.
these models are available with either a Gf2go, GeForce4 go, or the ati mobility 7000m graphics chipsets.
any of these would be ok, personally for me laptops are shockingly slow and almost unusable when i compare them to my desktop.
it mostly depends on weather your a video based person or a 3d based person i think.
but definetly go for as many firewire and usb(2) ports as possible.
morph: what kind of laptop(s) do you have/use?
