I've been very happy with my HP notebooks, but the 2gb ram limit is
constraining when using vmware. Does anyone know of a fast notebook that
supports more than 2gb of ram?

Alberto,

I'm getting a Dell D620 with 3gb in a few days...

HP nc8430. That's what I use, though admittedly I only have 2GB in it
right now. The 2GB DIMMs were too expensive, so I just stuck with 1GB
DIMMs for now. I'll upgrade once the prices have come down.

Don't you mean bogus instead of bonus?

Admittedly, I've only played with a few macs, but I just don't like the user
interface. And they always cost so much more too.

We've started building laptops on Asus chasis. They work so well I'm
thinking of getting one for me.
15" screen
2.4 core2 duo
3 G
100 G 7200 RPM
DVDRW
ATI 256

The 17" screen has 512 dedicated memory.
