Drivers get all jacked up and the OS gets fragmented and screwed up over time, and a re-install makes everything work together again.

Dude I reinstall when a new windows comes out that's about it.

If you're one of those people who can't resist BonziBuddy and desktpop stripper and all that you should stick to macbooks guess. Although now that they are popular all the same shit exists for both platforms.

It's sort of like carpet-bombing when you aren't sure what is wrong. No reason to buy a new computer when a re-install will make you happy with what you got.

Although, my XP rig, I do not do this, but it does not even have the provisions on it to connect to any sort of network. It's used solely for playing older games, mostly Morrowind.

This explains a lot. Just be 'smart' on the internet. There's no free lunch. Careful with porn too.

Yes, indeed it does. No denying that. The fact of the matter is that relatively speaking, you can't have good battery life AND acceptable gaming performance.

GPUs need a lot of power. :-/

The i3 with a decent amount of RAM is just fine for your application. An i5 would be better, but a high spec i3 won't hold you back IMO. i7's are not worth the money in a mobile application and the i3/i5 will be more efficient with your battery along the way.

I'm a Dell fan as well, but I haven't been too happy with their latest offerings. The Latitude i3's are worth a look, I've always been happy with Latitudes in the workplace as they are well built, well equipped and will handle most tasks outside of gaming or 3D CAD/extensive graphics work.

For the last year I've been pushing Lenovo ThinkPad Edge laptops at work for our field engineers and technicians. They hold up very well and just feel nicely built. Again i3's with 4-8GB of RAM is pretty typical for a low 400-500$ entry cost, but you can upgrade those items if you feel more is necessary. I have been contemplating getting one for home use to replace my Dell XPS12.
