And then there is Sager NP8890 ULTRA ...
...that could be filled upto the gills. It does offer UXGA resolution
& >=2.8 GHz CPUs for you; serial & parallel ports, 2 PCMCIA Type II
slots and built in floppy for me.
CD/DVD drive, however, cannot be taken out, unlike Dell Inspiron
5000e, if desired to lighten the weight. I suppose at ~$2106 (as i
configured), one cannot have everything.
Thankfully, i am not looking for a new laptop currently, unless Apple
iBook G4's are going insanely cheap.
PS: I have no relation to PowerNotebooks, just am a laptop user
looking out for future acquisitions.
