    After many years of building desktops and owning laptops (not cost effective to build, IMO), I am quite conviced that off loading all graphics operations to a separate graphics card is the way to go concerning getting the most out of one's PC. IMO, on board accelerators do not accomplish much.

    I like disk space, but unless I can get a decent priced drive with a very large cache and 7200 rpm, capacity beyond 250 MB does not mean much unless making the machine a device to store movies. IMO, more overall performance can be garnered by off loading all graphics operations to a card if I had the a budget and had to make choices.

    Curious. What do you plan to do with 16 processors? I am working with Argonne National Laboratories and they are scratching to find work with their 256 processor cluster (besides of simulating nuclear explosions).

    +1. Very very few personal / home applications are designed for more than ONE core, let alone more than 2 and up to 16 and beyond. Most of the things normal people do with PCs would never need the parallel power of that many cores.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Technically, four quad core processors.

    It's running Xen. I have any number of VPS chunks running on it doing things at my data center.

    Thumbs up Mini Notebook Deal!

    If you need it to be very compact and light, but don't mind the small screen and/or Linux operating system! It even has a Solid State disk, rather than a traditional spinning (and damage prone) hard drive. Just over 2 lbs weight:

    - Asus Eee PC 900A Notebook
    - Intel Atom N270 1.60 GHz processor
    - 1 GB DDR2 RAM
    - 4 GB SSD (Solid-State Disk) internal storage capacity
    - 802.11b/g Wireless LAN
    - 2.18 lbs weight with battery
    - Keyboard with touchpad
    - Built-in memory card reader

    MSRP: $450, currently $180 with free shipping. CA residents will have to pay sales tax, but you never skimp on your taxes anyway, right?!

    http://www.buy.com/prod/asus-eee-pc-...70&dcaid=17070

    I've never tried or owned Asus, but this looks like a pretty amazing deal to me.

    did not hear good things about W7 at office who have bought it, though not sure what are the issues they were having.

    This new one is a triple cooler with CPU, GPU and NB while the N20-120 is only running CPU. I could get additional blocks for it but the new triple has a MASSIVE radiator so by all logic it should do a much better job.

    3 x 120mm radiator vs 1 x 120mm radiator. You will need a full tower case for this. I have CM Sniper so it should not be a problem but lets see.
