Well, I plan to build a notebook based on the Uniwill 259EN3, but I still have to get the money for the chassis, as I just started a new job. I probably wont be able to acquire the chassis for about a month or so. I don't have a digicam, but I know someone with a nice digtal rebel that I could proba...

All I know is that I don't want a repeat of my current laptop. Its an old p2 that I rebuilt over the summer being short on cash. It has crappy battery life, weighs a ton, and isn't even fast.

Almost seems paradoxal having a nice power sipping Pentium-M together with a big power eating graphics chip like that. I haven't even seen X800XTPE chips in those big monsterous P4 laptops. Speaking of which, whats the battery life on this thing. I don't see it on their website.

According to what I've read, and some poking around with opera of my own, as long as your browser refers as IE6 it works just fine. Seems pretty stupid for them to be restricting then. I don't really understand why they would restrict this anyway. Even if they were Microsoft's eh, lewd woman, I don'...

Uniwill 259EN3 Notebook Chassis Retailers

http://www.uniwill.com/products/hybrid/259en3/259en3.php?HL=1&H=1 Seems like a pretty nice barebones. What I really dig is the fact that it has MXM, and the switchable graphics card.
