Does anyone have any good recomendations for Laptops? I'd like one that runs WINXP and Gentoo well. Portable but with a decent screen and good battery life.

I've been looking at Averatec... any thoughts about them. What about Dell - any complaints?

I have a dell laptop and I don't like it too much, just feels kinda cheapish and battery life sucks (that's prolly just mine, though). My boss has a new IBM laptop and I really like that one. I would make sure the thinkpad is on your list of laptop candidates. ;)

I've got a Dell and it's been nice - admittedly it's a fairly high-end one so the build quality's pretty good. I wouldn't get one of the really cheap ones.
The screens are particularly nice - you can get decent resolutions on a lot of them, which they've been pushing ahead of a lot of other manufacturers.

A quick search brings up many more, just make sure to spell recommendation with double m. Post there if questions are left.
