ok so im looking at getting a new laptop i have a few specifications
1. some kind of metal chasis (i believe titinaum is all theysell)
2. support for a second battery and an extra modular drive. so if i wanted i could have 2 cds , cd hd, modular battery, cd .... ya get the idea

the only thing i have found is a gateway 600 series .... dont really wanna buy from em cause i dont feel like fighting about the OS preinstalled but i will if i have to .... so can anyone reccomend any tops that meet those specs ...?

you could just delete the xp partition as soon as you get it, you wont have to activate it but you will have to pay for it...

i like sonys and apples. i'm not sure if sony has a system that meets all your specs and i don't think any apples can take a second battery. I like my old vaio f580 and a client of mine has a sweet new, light powerful system. The apple doesn't have windows. OSX is pretty cool too, even runs generic X (w/ or w/out aqua) with a portage-like pkg management system.
