    The OEM and Retail are only within $2-3...they charge practically nothing for the heatsink...

    Some thoughts:

    Old laptops have a generally higher resale value than old desktops because by virtue of their mobility they will always retain some value.

    Laptops will always be slower than high end tweaked desktops because of the limitations in size, power consumption, and cooling but they can come pretty close.

    Laptops can make good mobile gaming machines but they lose their appeal quickly as new technology comes out and I generally lose interest in less than a year or so.

    In addition to building desktop PCs and running Windows I also appreciate other technologies and Operating Systems. I really like Macintoshes and Apple's amazing OSX software. Since I can't custom build high end Mac desktops or any laptops for reasonable costs I consider my laptop the perfect place to play with OSX. I also find Apple makes some damn fine laptop computers for very competitive prices. They are perfect for typical mobile computing tasks and OSX is a great OS to learn.

    I'm waiting now for Apple to toss their 64 bit G5 into one of these laptops.

    I take that you both own at least one Macintosh each?
