I'm looking for a laptop for work, but can do some side gaming or media playing. I'm also a crazy multi tasker, with around 10 tabs in IE or Firefox, iTunes in the background, IRC on the side, and probably watching some vids either downloaded or streaming.

This is the stuff I do on my desktop at home, but I would like to be able to do at least half the stuff on my laptop.

The only things I think I want on my laptop would be a Core 2 Duo processor, XP instead of Vista, at least 14' screen, 2gb RAM and a SATA HD. Maybe more RAM considering, but that'll be a side purchase i guess...

S-Video Out would be nice, but don't really need it.

Is there anything I should look out for? I know desktops, but not much on laptops and their current tech...

Well, as far as you are looking, most likely Acer or Toshiba have what you are after price wise.

Maybe even asus (not really EEE as it is not a great multi-tasker) have what you need.

Best bet is to search these manufacturers sites and see what looks good then give us links to look at.

Hell, actually, check Dell, they have some sub 1000 dollar notebooks.

I got a Toshiba L300D, for $1,050 from JB HIFI. With a $100 cashback that is $950. Pretty damn good as well for its price range.

It has an Turion X2 though. But I am amazed at how it performs, I was litle down on it at first but has actually surprised me, to say the least.

I've found one on Toshiba's Australian website, but can't get the link.

Toshiba Satellite A300 - looking at the J00 model (product code: PSAG4A-0CJ007)

Can't find the price either, but I think i saw it for around $1200...

There's also one for Acer

Acer Extensa 5620
http://www.acer.com.au/acer/akc/portablepc.nsf/Page/RWPC0730F00F74B29EDCA2573BE0020502B?open&

This one's for around $1150

Seems like if I want a laptop with Core 2 Duo and 2gb RAM, it's going to be at least $1,000.

Any advice on these 2 laptops?

Customize it and save some money.

Acer are useless.
