Andy, make sure you get enough RAM. Most computers come with 512 but if you can, and if the laptop has enough space, spend the extra $$ and upgrade to 1024.

Yeah the more RAM the better. 512 is the absolute minimum you want right now. You would be fine with just 512, but much happier with more!

Thanks for the tips. I'll keep the info about the security systems and ram in mind. I've actually been getting along with 128mb but will appreciate more.
