  1. I have been looking for the best Laptop, specs-wise, for Windows XP gaming. Not a Laptop that is powerful enough for Windows 7, so something from around 2001 - 2003. A decent video chip from Nvidia, or ATI, would be nice. Certainly better than anything from Intel. Single core CPU, 1 - 1.5Ghz CPU. A dual core would be nice, but I doubt it would have the older ports. 1 - 1.5Gb RAM. Should be enough for XP. HD size - not too fussed. Will probably replace with a DOM, or a SDCard solution. Ports - Definitely looking for older ports such as Parallel, RS232 Serial. These would be mostly for projects. USB 1.0/2.0 - USB would be nice, 1 or 2 ports. VGA port - Not a necessity, but I'm seeing them on a lot of Laptops from this era, anyway. So far, after a few hours on Google, I have found a few models, some maybe from specific regions only. Dell Latitude D600 - This looks like a great all rounder. Fairly decent Pentium M CPU, ATI 9000 series graphics, CDROM/DVDRom Drive, Cheap and easy to find. Dell Inspiron 8000 - This looks a bit old for XP. Pentium III-M, Nvidia GeForce 2 mobile, a possible ESS Maestro 3 audio card( Not all models). Dell Precision M6300 - This looks a bit too new for XP (Thinking of drivers), Intel Core 2 Duo T9300, Nvidia FX 1600M, 3Gb RAM, SigmaTel STAC9205 Audio chip. Dell Inspiron 9300 - Too many Dells. Intel Pentium M 1.86 GHz, 2Gb RAM, DVD Drive, 2Gb RAM, ATI Radeon X300 1440 x 900 or Geforce Go 6800. STAC9750 Audio codec. This looks good, cheap, easy to find. IBM Thinkpad T42 - Intel Pentium M 1.6 GHz, 1Gb RAM, 30+GB HD, Radeon 7500 or 9000, Built like a tank. Not easy finding one working and complete. Compaq Evo N610c - Pentium 4 M 1.8GHz, Mobility Radeon 7500, DVD Drive, Hard to find complete. I can only find parts. Would run XP well. To me, the best so far, with all the ports I want, is the Dell Latitude D600. Easy to find, cheap - about £60 ($75) for a good one with everything I need including PSU. I Can still get the drivers from Dell, and it appears to run XP very well. I would love a 3.5" floppy drive, as well. But finding a Laptop able to run XP, XP games, and have a floppy drive, is asking a little too much. I know you can buy external drives, but compatibility with the programs I want to use, isn't great. I need a floppy drive connected to a floppy controller, not a USB controller. What I don't want is a desktop, I don't have the space for one. And, I need portability. So, anyone rocking a XP Laptop for XP gaming ?
